Tire Pressure Sensors on M3 ?!?!

Those who have gotten aftermarket wheels and live in cold climates where they will be putting back their stock wheels for the winters months - what have you done about your tire pressure sensors?

I called my local dealer and asked and its pretty pricey, he told me I need to get the RDC Module and Valve Stems.

Valve Stem

If you change your wheels or the pressures then you should recalibrate the Tyre Pressure Monitor. In other words, teach the TPM the new settings. How to do this is in the manual.
