    Your tyre size is 225 45 17 so Audi recommend 29PSI front and 30PSI back if there's not loads of weight in the car, according to the fuel cap.

    I was trying to figure out the same thing, but cannot for the life of me what m+s means as it gives two different ratings.

    I'm pretty sure m+s gives the same psi with the XL by itself, the different psi are just for the different weight load on the car
