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: http://www.realoem.com/bmw/
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.
Well, the OTHER ISSUE is that his TPMS must be of a compatible frequency to his car's receiver...there have been changes from BMW, but I don't have the dates of those changes at hand. The Tire Rack would know based on the OP's year/make/model.

I'm still wondering if it's worth it to dismount the tires, install the TPMS, remount the tires, rebalance the tires...BIG BUCKS...perhaps MORE than buying the Conti Comfortkit!!
