Flat tire warning??

I got a flat tire warning today when i was driving around. Checked the idrive and it shows all 4 tires are in low pressure. (yellow color on all 4,which normally should be green) I pulled over and got out the car, tires looked fine and i tried to reset the TPMS. I tried to drive another 30 minutes and see if the warning light will show up again but it didn't. I am wondering if this is a normal glitch on M3 (never had this problem with my 335 during my 2 years ownership) or should i bring it to dealer for a check? .Thanks guys!

Check your pressures and top up as needed. The caution light comes on at about 10% pressure loss. You can reset it to whatever pressure you like, but that doesn't fix the issue. Check the label in the drivers door jam for appropriate pressures, correct them and then reset the tpm again.

Usually gives me that warning on all 4 tires when the temperature drops/rises significantly. I get it twice a year during Fall and Spring when the temps change dramatically. I wouldn't worry about it.

Have you recently switched wheels/tires?
Remember in Canada we do not have TPMS in the valve stem of each tire so it picks up a low tire based on rotation of the tire.

Yeah same here

OP, double check with a manual psi gauge add air if needed and reset your tpms.

I get that warning almost every morning when it is below 50. Goes away when I reset it.
