    Tyre pressure loss indicator ?

    I have Tyre pressure loss indicator's fitted to my Black Edition, what will happen when I put my 16" winter wheels on that don't have the sensors fitted ?

    No sensors on the wheels on the A3 - just uses the ABS system to detect tyre rolling differences - so you can just swap the wheels and do a TPMS reset when ready to set the baseline
