How to reset TMPS when changing new tires on audi

It is my new 2019 A3. Just want to try reset TPMS when change to snow tires.
The user manual says:
Select in the Infotainment system: [MENU] button > Vehicle > left control button > Service &
checks > Tire pressure monitoring > Store tire
pressure > Yes, store now

However, I cannot find the "Tire pressure monitoring" on MMI

I remember doing this on my Armada once. It was quite the process.

I had to unbalance all the tires, to have a 5psi difference between each one, so starting at 20psi front left, and finishing at 35psi back right, then short out some plug at the back of the OBDII sensor with a wire to the chassis ground. Then start driving. They would all wake up one at a time.

Took a few tries, but it worked. LOL. I am not recommending that for yours, if there is a real way to do it, just sharing a way on older vehicles.

Audi doesn't use TPMS but indirect TPMS only. There should be a function to store tire pressures in the MMI.

When in doubt read the manual.
