First you will need your new TPMS sensor and correct size valve stem.
Done. We would like to thank the guys at ShopTPMS for the great pics. Post up any questions you have. Thanks
This is gr8 - very informative. However, what do you have to do to to get the TPMS to register on the screen (I've seen lots of postings re a screen graphic that shows the pressure for each tyre); do you have to code it in yourself or does it magically appear because you have added the TPMS sensors to yr wheels.
This is quite important for me as I'm buying a new F10 535d (with Navi Pro) but the BMW TPMS option (2VB) is $700 & I can get the sensors (bought, delivered & fitted) for around half that price. so am looking for some thoughts as to which is the best way to go.
Appreciate yr help here...thanks.
