What tyre pressures, pre-facelift FR

Just wondering what tyre pressures you all use? (with the standard 16" wheels on the FR).

I know the book says 33 Front / 30 Rear for normal driving conditions, but just thought some of you may have found a better combination I could try.

75% of the time it's just me in the car, and I very rarely have people in back. The boot is also quite empty too.

I just use the pressures that are inside the fuel cap

Its only me in the car normally and never had a problem

32 all round, its easier that way and within the min and max for both front and rear depending on the weight, its ok saying its usually only you but what happens when you pick up three mates on the weekend for football

yer its the pressure inside the tyre not the amount of air, so really there probably not going 2 be a large pressure diffrence

normally lower profile tyres need a bit extra tyre pressure? if you pick up three lads from footy then it wouldnt really matter unless your planning on taking a detore round a race track!
