: 09 528xi - TPMS - Can I retrofit?

06-30-2012, 06:11 AM
Just bought this vehicle. In the iDrive screen, it has the TPMS menu item greyed out. Is it possible to retrofit the wheels with sensors and get it all to work with iDrive? If so, can anyone tell me what is needed? Thanks!

As far as I know, the wheels have to be designed to work with TPMS, and few aftermarket wheels are. If you have stock BMW wheels without the sensors, you can buy them, but they're a bit expensive.
