I really don't think TPMS is necessary as I will be ordering non-run flats (will use slime and compressor in case of flats).

Does anyone have experience with running the E25 without TPMS? I expecting that I'll have a warning light lit all the time (not worried about that), but I'm not clear is DSC will deactivate (as it does when it detects low pressure)?
Good point, you will get the warning for sure and I now the last time my tire pressure got a little low with the change in weather, the warning came on and some stuff like using sport or sport+ mode won't engage with the warning on. I would just spend the $200 for the sensors.
