2010 VW GTI: Tire Pressure, The EU, and The euro

I usually check the tire pressures on a test car before a big trip. And I did check our long-term 2010 VW GTI's relatively large 225/40R18s before my weekend trip to San Francisco and Laguna Seca and was surprised that they take 38 psi.

I was also surprised when I discovered that our GTI is manufactured in Germany, not Latin America (verified by the monrooney below.)

Not that I have anything against Latin America, but Germany is now almost single-handedly supporting the EU and the euro.

Our long-term GTI is assembled in Wolfsburg, Germany. And that's fine with me.
