Who Has Best Price on TPMS?

So far, the TireRack seems to have the best price on a set of four sensors. Their retail price comes in under $200 and their wholesale price comes in under $160 with stems (are the stems needed?). I was looking for a set from somebody on here a while back, but nobody was selling any.

Look on the vendors forum wheel subsection, there are a few. Pyspeed is selling at $175 shipped and there is a group buy for $165 but you gotta wait.

Hey, thanks! Sounds like their prices have dropped since the last time I searched in that section. Good to see basic economics at work

In the vender section, Bavarianx is even cheaper.

Well PYspeed doesn't beat TireRack's wholesale price, which I can get.

Why the hell not put replaceable batteries on the sensors? It's a freaking rip-off having to buy new sensors just for the batteries .

Can you get that for those on the board that haven't purchased them yet? Since you cared to mention it.

I don't have the time to head up a group buy. You'd be better off getting in on the existing $165 group buy that was mentioned.

What is the average lifespan of the batteries in the TPMS sensors?

5-7 years for the German made one's BERU, VDO, Siemens, Schrader. If you get the copies made in China 2-3 years (maybe). Things like mileage and temp. extreme's shorten the life as well. more info

Do the math. I wouldn't be able to help you out. My cost is $158 + shipping, which comes close to the $165 group buy. Then if you add shipping from me to you, you're over that price. Just get in on the group buy, and you'll be better off.

Does anyone know if the stock BERU sensors in the 3 series will work from car to car? I sold my 335xi and have an M3 now and have a set of rims with new BERU sensors on them. Will these work on the M ?

Don't know about other model compatibility. The 2010 model year M3's on do have a different sensor than the the 2009 model year and back M3's. They don't interchange.

When I was in the market a few months ago, the 2010 MY sensors were quite a bit more expensive than the older sensors. At the time, Tischer had the best price that I could find on the newer sensors.
