doesn't matter...
trust me on this one.

get that junk out of your engine, go to bosch's website if you don't
believe me, it states
platinum plugs are for lower voltage ignition systems, not for audis.

BTW, same problem has happened to many, i've worked at a euro repair shop.
scenario goes something like this, i just did a tuneup now my car runs worse.
what kind of plugs did you use? - Bosch platinums, guy at the parts store
said how good they are
blah blah, try these supers, oh problem fixed.

bottom line the platinums are junk for most audi apps and the +4 is not
worth the $.
stick with the OEM recommended plugs they works best.
