That's good news.  Which dealer and when did they do it?  What did they adjust it to?

The tyre pressure label on your Nuevo was placed there by Peugeot as part of the unconverted vehicle's Stage 1 Type Approval which was granted by Italy.  A-S has had nothing to do with it or the tyre pressures and nor did the UK's VCA when it granted A-S Stage 2 Type Approval for the converted vehicle in 2007.  The Peugeot pressures of 5.0 bar front and 5.5 bar rear are supposed to be for when the unconverted vehicle is loaded to its axle MTPLMs which should be 1750 kg front & 1900 kg rear if the GVW is 3300 kg.  The DVSA has stated: the tyre manufacturer is best placed to suggest what pressures are acceptable and these should not be exceeded unless on specific advice from them.”  You really need to check with your tyre manufacturer to find out from them what tyre pressures you should be using for the converted vehicle's axle masses which can't exceed 1400 kg at the front if the rear axle MTPLM of 1900 kg and vehicle's GVW are not to be exceeded.  When you lower your front tyre pressures you should find an improvement in road handling and front wheel traction.  Braking distances and tyre wear should also reduce and there will be in improvement in comfort.
The pressure for agilis cp  is 80 psi  as stated by Michelin

For the rear CP tyres yes but not for the front.  80 psi equates to 5.5 bar.  The ETRTO has directed that all rear CP tyres should be set to 5.5 bar regardless of the rear axle mass.  Continental have kicked back on this and currently recommend adjusting their rear CP tyres according to the rear axle mass.  Their table of rear CP pressures is in their Databook.  Your Nuevo is rear heavy front light.  If your rear axle mass is at its MTPLM of 1900 kg (which is 100 kg less than for the current Nuevo) which it could easily be and you had Continental tyres, they would probably still recommend 5.5 bar due to possible uneven loading across the rear axle but they would recommend a much lower front CP tyre pressure as your front axle mass won't be more than 1400 kg.  Michelin also recommend a lower pressure for their front CP tyre but not as low as Continental or Pirelli.

Peugeot Houndsmill, Basingstoke, they did it two years ago. Can’t remember exactly what it was changed to but think it was 45 front and 55 rear.
