    My copen doesn't have a label where the manual says it should to tell me what pressure to have my tyres at, advice please! I want to play with the inflation gadget. Thanks

    I realise that this is an old post that I am adding to...but..
    May I suggest that 35psi sounds rather high for such a light car...I imagine it would shake your fillings out at that pressure...
    I always run rear tyres at least 2 psi lower than front
    Use your own pressure gauge.. a simple one, you dont need digital and do not rely on petrol forcourt machine
    try running 30 psi front and 28 rear..see how it handles/rides/corners.
    You can always adjust up/down 2psi

    Would the recommended psi change if the tires were 15 inch?
