Low Tire Pressure Display

In my non-iDrive E93, when one of my tires has low pressure, I just get a display in the instrument cluster (and the warning light above) that tells me that my tire is low, but it does not tell me what tire is low, just that one, or all, are low.

Others have posted that they have had some software upgrade that even in a non-iDrive car showed you in the instrument cluster which specific tire(s) are low.

I have called my SA to get this done, and he does not seem to understand what I am asking him about. Can someone who has the display in the instrument cluster that shows which tire is low post a pic of it so I can show it to my SA?

Thanks!

The upgrade to the software on non-iDrive models was done as part of the ECU reprogramming for the HPFP recall on 335i models. As you have a 328, you weren't subject to the recall, and I don't know if there was an upgrade made to 328 software as a result.

I don't know why your SA can't understand what you're talking about. Even my "lowly" bare bones E90 displays which tire position has an underinflated tire (no iDrive)! Just ask him WHY your dash display doesn't indicate the WHEEL POSITION for a low tire. Heck, my 2008 E92 did...although it did have iDrive.
