For those of you with an oil pressure gauge installed, can you tell me what pressures you are seeing in different scenarios. I am trying to ensure that I don't have a problem with unusually high pressure.

I am looking for pressure reading when the car is cold and idling, hot and idling, hot and cruising (50mph - top gear), and hot with heavy throttle.

My car at a cold idle right after start-up is a tad under 7 bar. In the 20 minutes it takes to warm up it drops slownly down to 3 bar ( warm idle ). On light cruising I am seeing 5-6.5 bar. And on heavy throttle I see 6.0 - 7.5 bar.

I am running 10w-30 synthetic.

My motor has 5k on it and my pressures are very similar. Don't think you have much of a problem from what I see and I am running the same type of oil.
