Hi all
Could anyone please tell me the correct tyre pressures for a 2000 D2 2.8 Sport with standard 245/45/18 wheels/tyres? Thank you! :-)

Almost certainly 32psi but isn't there a label inside the fuel flap?

e.g. Cruise control, NavPlus/TV, Bose, GSM, Xenons, Solar roof, Parking sensors, Alcantara/leather everywhere of course. (internal dimming mirror added later)

Depends on tyre make, model and load, Pressures on the flap will advise only for the factory tyres but will show different variations depending on load. I personally find that pressure needs to be higher to reduce wear at the cost of comfort, 36-42 PSI for me.
