Quite early on I noticed that the F10 is particularly sensitive to very small pressure variations and found it most responsive at the lowest end of the range. I was initially concerned about uneven tyre wear, but after 9k miles it's perfectly even over all four tyres.
I'd recommend that you get yourself a decent dial type pressure gauge and experiment within the specified range.
A bit 'off-the-wall' maybe, but last November my dealer paid for a nitrogen fill and, believe it or not, there was a slight improvement. It's a more stable gas than compressed air and less prone to temperature variations or leakage. I know there'll be plenty of detractors, but all I can say is that, from personal experience - it works.
