    I was working on my brakes and just happened to check the tire pressures because I was already working on the car. The BMW tires were 22 and the 328's were 24.

    Rob,

    GREAT advice! Been saying this to many of my local friends as for each 10F down you lose about 1psi. Here in New England it has been about 30F in the morning and near 50 in the afternoon. You got air temp, tire temps, and of course road temps to consider. Has been a challenge to find the "right" pressure. Still, many tires hate cold roadways. Need to get one of those laser temp gauges...

    BTW: am amazed how FAST the oil cools down once the engine is off. Only 45 minutes parked while at the mall and she is COLD again :-(

    Enjoy the Drive,

    Steven R. Rochlin
