My brother's has a close friend that works in a repair shop. I can likely get the installation done for nothing. Just have to shell out ~$200 for the sensors.
If you shop a bit (on-line) you might find them for fewer $$s.

Check the BMW forums too. One caution about buying used ones is the batteries are said to have a useful life of 5-10 years and they are NOT replaceable. Most TPMS for the year of your BMW are interchangeable. Check parts #s here:
They have been made by BEHR for BMW. If they are used you might have to buy a stem kit (about $7) if they were not removed carefully.
My opinions are free - you'll get exactly what you pay for!
