Can I use V-Power in my 2008 Audi TT?

I just scrapped my 22-year-old Audi 100 for a used approved 2008 Audi TT. The manual says it will run best on 98Ron petrol but that 95Ron can be used. I would like to do what's best but nobody makes 98Ron, as far as I can see. I can get Shell Fuelsave 95Ron and V-Power 99Ron locally. The V-Power is the closest Ron, but will it harm the engine being over the recommended 98Ron?

Shell V-Power will be fine. It will give you about 20PS more than 95Ron as well as keep the fuel system clean and probably deliver a few extra mpg if you use the increased torque to change up earlier.
