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...

Yes the sticker on the door frame. My 2004 330CIC Canadian\European sticker lists 10 tire size options for my model with the appropriate recommended pressures for fully loaded or up to 2 people.

I keep my car empty and usually by myself. I have the series 73 rims with 205/50/17 snows. For the 2 people setting it recommends 32/36 for max vehicle weight in that tire size it lists 39/46.

You can see that there is a large range between 2 people and max car load, so if you want to run 35/40 you will be fine.
