Yes, it is true that you have to drop the bumper. However, $1,500 is way too much. I have no idea what they would be charging for.

If you're wondering what the process is like, take a look at...

The only way you could activate from the front seat is calling it through voice command. I think it's easier to have a passenger do the work on iDrive from the back though

I would say wait it out until you can at facelift S550. If...

I love the Continental DW's. They do have a softer sidewall, which may hinder steering feel if you have a smaller diameter wheel, but for most of us with 19+ inches, they're just as good as a harder...

You should be able to press down on something when viewing the TPMS on iDrive. That will do it.
