Tire Pressure Monitoring System on our M3

Can someone tell me if on the e9x the TPMS is installed within the rim/tire or external to the rim/tire on our Canadian M3's

I ask this question since on my former e89 Z4 35i the TPMS was external i.e not part of the rim/tires and I used my winter/tire set without any problems. I found out then that the US cars had the TPMS as part of the wheel/tires whereas the Canadian cars had them external to the wheel/tires.

I am hoping the same holds true for the M3 otherwise I will have to sell my existing winter tire wheel set.

My plans are to use the winter tire set on my new 2012 M3 and I just like to be sure that I will not be driving around all winter with the tire pressure monitoring system lights on.

Thanks in advance,


Cheers, Rolf-Dieter

Life will take us to some interesting places, fortunately The ///M3 will too with a many of us know this very well, now my C6.3 AMG with 487 HP does it too
