    Hi, a bit confused on the tyre pressure, had a look under the fuel cap, and there are two lots of tyre pressures ( each with a full set of occupancy options). At the top there are a set for:
    225/45
    Then underneath, there is a set for:
    225/45 xl M+S

    I have no idea what I have on my car as the info is not the usual. I have a 2.0 TDI SE if that helps!
    Cheers

    M+S are Mud+Snow tyres i.e. winter tyres.

    You should use the pressures for 225/45 tyres unless your tyres have M+S markings on the sidewall.
