Hi,
The GLA 45 has a tyre pressure readout, great, however, its in Kpa. OK, I know how to convert to Psi / Bar, but its not a calculation I can do in my head.
Is there a way to get it displayed in something more "road friendly" as opposed to track based

I enquired about this when I first got the car, and the answer is no - kPa is the new European standard, so that is that! However, 100 kilopascals = 1 bar, and all UK gauges show bar as well as psi, so all is not lost when inflating your tyres. You just need to start thinking in different units when reading the instrument display.

My fronts are at 240 and the rears at 230 (which is what they were when I collected the car; the guide inside the petrol flap says 220 for the rears with "no" passengers)
You are obviously exploiting the car's potentially a bit more than I am :)
I have plenty of tread left after 6000 miles.
