I'd stick with 33psi all round.

Take them higher for track work though.

Actually it is a win/loose situation, depending at what speeds you are cornering.

For speeds up to 100mph 33-34psi all round is ok but above 110 the car feels reactive rather than responsive.

With 38-40psi front, 35 rear the car is very responsive above 110 but it slides a bit at lower speeds.

Wherever allowed that is.

Manual confirms 33 all round so that is what I stick to.

Tricky question to get a decent comparison because gauges all vary. I set mine with one of those Acquire/Halfords gauges (well recommended by Auto Express) but when I went to my mates garage and compared it back to back with their recently calibrated master pressure gauge there was 2psi difference.

The Bosch tyre inflator I use now I set to 32.5psi, handling seems Ok but a touch vague when slowing down in a hurry from motorway speeds - characteristic of the Goodyears?

Oooh, that's a bit low I think - that's why the handling is a bit vague at speed. Try 32.7psi instead...
