tpms acurracy?

How accurate is the tpms? Is there a way to display actual pressures like on a Ferrari?

What do you guys normally run for pressure on stock 19's and stock tire sizes? Thanks. I didn't see any tire pressure threads for performance driving.

Don't think it can display actual pressures...it's just a "monitor" for extreme loss of pressure.

As for recommended pressures...read the manual. 35psi all around recommended for normal driving and 35/36 f/r for speeds exceeding 100mph.

+1

.... also I carry a good pressure gauge along with a pint of oil and a first aid kid. Checking your air pressure bi-weekley should be a matter of course to obtain good thread wear all around.

it is ridiculous that it will not display actual pressures. My wife's 2007 Acura TL Type-S will show me pressure at all four tires and it came with front Brembos. BMW needs to do these small things going forward. It is not rocket science.

+1. All chevy's do it too, tahoe to corvette. It's sad that a $60k+ performance car that has TPMS will not reveal the TPMS data. It would be particularly helpful to those of us that track, it would tell hot pressures in real time.
