    Finally got round to checking my tyre pressures. I'm sure I should have done it a long time ago (10000 miles).

    Anyway, opened the fuel cap to check the pressure limits and found 16" and 17" but no 18". Useless! Whats the point of sending a car out of the factory on 18's and not providing info on the correct pressures. Surely its not going to break the bank for Audi to produce seperate stickers for different models.

    I'm running 3 pilot sports and one Pirelli P Zero. Any idea what pressures I should be putting in them, or is that a personal preference? The max rating on the tyres is 50 psi.

    This has been covered b4!

    Audi have not overlooked it folks!

    The pressure info IS on the inside of the hinge of the fuel cap, and not on the fuel cap itself. Have look next time you fill up.

    I have just come back from a long weekend touring around the west coast of Scotland fully loaded up with people and luggage.
    The recommended tyre pressures for this are 38/38.
    Solo pressures are 35/30,according to the little thing inside the fuel flap.
    That's for the 18 inchers.

    38/38 made the car unbearable with anything other than a full load.
