I just put new rims with summer tire and on my 7. I purchased new TPMS (not OEM) so that I would not have to keep changing them each time I changed set ups. The new TPMS are not working correctly; Idrive keep requiring me to reset. So, I have decided to go with OEM sensors but the dealer's price is out of the question. I have seen some on Ebay but not sure if they are all the same. Question: Are they all the same, if not, what is the part number for my 08 750.

Thank in advance

You will need BERU RDE-008 sensors

I have not seen any with this information. The sensors that are listed are made by BERU but have a part number of: 36 23 6 781 847; 6779490-02; 6771034-03

yes, that is the bmw oem part#
the RDE-008 is the exact same sensor made by BERU, you should be able to pick a set up for $200 new.

I have snow tires and wheels bought through the BMW dealer already used on a 750 without issue. For use on my 750, is it slap them on and go or do I need a reset or so train the sensors. If so, can I find it in the manual (my car comes mid to late next week so I can't look). If not in the manual, can you post the reset process here, thnks for any replies.

If your manual is identical to mine the instructions are in there on resetting the TPM. gl

Thanks I'll wait til the car comes to review and put them on a few days before my Thanksgiving trip across the mountains of WV to make sure they work OK before hitting the road.
