Thx.
On my 09 car. I have 2 sets of TPMS. One that came with my OEM 19 inch wheels and the new ones that I put on my RAC wheels that are on the car now. All I had to do when I put the RAC wheels on it reset the TPMS via iDrive and it worked perfectly.

The TPMS does not need to be coded to the car. It is pretty much plug and play as long as you have the correct TPMS for the year of the car. I understand BMW changed the TPMS for MY10.
