We get the same sensors as BMW does, direct from Beru. They will be 100% compatible. Assuming these are for M3, make sure to specify whether they are from before 2010, or from 2010 and later.

Current prices with valve included are $49 for old version, $53 for new. Price subject to change, so if you are viewing this after 10/5/10, it may be different than quoted.

Work wheels can be drilled to work with TPMS or we supply them with proprietary work brackets that will allow the TPMS to be put on without drilling.

Sorry for taking this out of topic.... (please PM me if possible on the brackets).
FYI, the Work wheels has 2 different kinds of tpms that we can put on. in order for me to know which one, i am going to need to know exactly which wheel in what size and specs. Again, please PM me if possible.

Which wheel do you have? and also, taking the wheels to a reputable shop to drill is MUCH better than the brackets. Brackets tend to break/snap... Then you have to buy new sensors if they get crushed during a flat tire. No bueno... A buddy of mine owns a shop and I see it all day. Spend the extra money and do it. It'll save you the headache in the future.

If you haven't received the wheels yet, you can order the Work wheels to have pre-tapped TPMS holes in them.

^ very true and great advise.

we prefer a good positioned drilled hole than a bracket. but some wheels do not allow for a good position and this is where the bracket comes in.

as for BT_M3's case, he has a step lip wheel which is not easy to drill as it is not a reverse rim. we had some specialty stems that we use instead of the brackets, so he's all taken care of.
