We're not talking about a subjective thing here, such as the color of the headlights, or quality of the stereo. There is a vibration. The dealer verified the vibration (so not just my opinion). BMW...

You may want to repost. I can't see the original post in the thread. No description, no pics, no info, no price, etc. FYI

That's correct. The TPMS will not register on your 2014. If you want it to work you will have to change out the module in each wheel. The rims and tires will fit, no problem.
