Check the door jamb on the driver's side. It should show tire pressure there.
Might not be for those exact tires, but it'll give you something to go off of.

not sure about 245, mine came with 235 stock ('95), but it should be close.

33 front, 36 rear.

oops, i misread that, my eyes saw 245 instead of 225.
but it should still be pretty close to that.

with non-stock 225 to 245 wheels, some peeps on the m3 forum have gone +/- 1 or 2 psi. if you're fully laden, i'd go on the + side.

k, i looked at door jamb (these numbers are for 235 tire)

with "3 adults" it is this:
front = 33, rear = 36

@ full capacity it is this:
front = 36, rear = 42

it appears there is quite a bit of latitude in the psi (F 33-36, R 36-42), so any number in between (closer to the upper end of the spectrum) should suffice, since you'll have 4 adults plus cargo.

isnt it 34 in front and 36 in the back? (they are offset because bmw does it to promote oversteer)
