I need 32psi for my tyres, does the pump stop once the psi is reached?

No idea, I doubt it though as it isn't digital.
I think I can see a gauge on it in the picture, you would probably have to stop the pump when you get to the pressure you want. Hot deal!
did try to get this last time but none when to the stores near me
I have this pump. Got it from LIDL. It is not good for pumping up car tyres as it delivers a very low volume of air. It takes me about 10mins to top up a tyre from 25 psi to 35 psi. It would take forever to pump up a tyre that was flat. However if it is used to pump up bicycle tyres it is ideal. There is also a quick inflation setting to blow up air beds, ballons etc. In fairness the box makes no mention of pumping up car tyres.

Not sure too many would do this. Would it be too much bother to just read the gauge, and switch off when desired psi reached???

The RAC/Ring ones do, but there again... you pay more for the pump.

Ideal for bicycle tyres?

If it has trouble with 32 psi if think it will struggle with the 120psi my tyres need

Like comparing Apples to Bananas.........
Blowing up a car tyre is completely different to a bicycle tyre - its the volume not the pressure that is the issue.

The box might not mention blowing up car tyres, but the picture with the advert clearly shows someone kneeling by a car tyre, with the pump in the foreground, and the pump hose going towards the car tyre, so they are certainly suggesting that it is suitable for car tyres.

" Operates from 12V in-car power supply". There's the clue.
