Programming Wheel Sensors OEM359?

I bought a set of OEM359 ZCP Wheel's.... I am getting them professionally re-finished in black therefore I had to remove the sensors on all 4 wheels. I did not make note of which sensor came off which wheel and I was told that I need to re-program these sensors now. I was under the impression that I can just attach the sensors back on the wheels and it will re-program itself!

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

If they're new to your car then I believe that you'll have to program them. Whatever shop mounts your tires will probably do it for a few bucks (or free if you ask before you give them the job)

I was looking at a spare set of wheels and someone told me that BMW changed their sensor system in 2010 and you'll need the right ones, but I may be mistaken.

No programming required. Just read the manual and reset through the idrive.

BTW. You are correct, also that there was a sensor change in 2010 so if you buy wheels from someone you need to make sure you get the right ones.

Since he's using the same ones it's no biggie. Push of a button.

Thanks to those who replied! Turns out that CDN M3's do not have wheel sensors! The ZCP wheels I bought were off a US vehicle hence the confusion. Thanks again.
