I have the Hella system on my 95 A6.
It works well, I like it.
Apart from seeing the pressure, what I really like is that the Hella
unit also shows you tire temperature.

Only problem I have is that if, like me, you don't buy a 2nd set of
sensors and install them on your winter tires, all winter long you
have to fight with the TPMS unit because it can't find hear the tires.
If I had to do it again, I would have installed an on/off switch in
the wiring so I could shut it off in the winter.
This is dangerous because you could accidentally turn it off in the
summer, but it would have been better
than having to fight with the head unit each time I started the car.
