I see some posts that BMW changed the TPMS around March 2014. Check on realoem.com to be sure and compare your cars production date with the date of the production of the donor cars' wheels.

Yesterday while on the site using my PC, I had numerous "do you want to open 645463.js ?" Prompts. The info before the .js was always random. It appears the site has been hacked, again.

I needed a car that seats 5, so the Panamera was out. I also think the 6GC looks better (both inside and out). Still, I would have at least test drove the Panamera if it sat 5.
