Nitrogen absolutely obeys the ideal gas law (in this pressure range). There must be some other reason for the "N2 in tires" craze. Relative lack of H2O vapor perhaps.

to the OP: you'll get some of the nice sound you're looking for on a cold morning. Also, I'd recommend not to stress too much over cetane. I've been driving diesels for a longish time and have only...

FWIW my "early" 2014 only shows green or not green for the tires. No pressure or temperature readings. It's a relatively vanilla (not many options) car. I say "early" because it has the old...

You might consider an alignment when you get a new set of tires, particularly if you don't like the wear patterns on the old ones.

I want to tell you that is a 43 offset, which I believe was correct for the E60 xdrive (RWD were 20 IIRC).
