I found 44 & 36psi to make the car / suspension excessively hard and crashy . I know this is the manual recommended pressures but I dropped them to 32 & 36 and must say what an improvement.

Only picked up my 911 last week but with M030 suspension the factory settings of 36f/44r gave a very harsh ride so I've reduced them to 32f/40r - I've seen these referred to elsewhere as the 'comfort' pressure setting.

The ride is much less crashy and the only slight downside is that the front seems to tramline a little more on poor road surfaces...

Might just try dropping the pressures, to enjoy driving on my abysmal local roads a little more.

I imagine the factory pressures are set for powering at speed on billiard table smooth German roads rather than pootling in traffic on the 3rd world surfaces in the UK.
