Went ahead and inflated per the sticker on the door (35-front, 40-rear), but you got me rethinking it...

Please let me know if there is another location where I should be looking...

Well, I just checked my own sticker and, for the 205-55/17 tires that were oem, my sticker only shows one recommended pressure: 39 front and 46 rear (with the doughnut at 61psi). This is for a 2005 330CiC. The size of wheels and tires have varied over time, so that may account for the differences between stickers. Yes, the sticker to which I refer is the one on the body of the car itself, visible when you open the driver side door.
When I bought the car, it was delivered with 36/36. When I later pointed out the discrepancy to the service advisor at BMW, he professed astonishment (after checking out my sticker) saying he was 'used to' seeing 36/36.
