Time to drive M3.

It's a little of both. The sensors do transmit pressure measurements; many other manufacturers display these readings on the instrument panel (BMW has decided we don't need/want to know... ). A TPMS reset does two things: Pairs the four transmitters' unique ID codes to the car and records the current pressure readings from each corner as the target pressures. The car computes the deviations thereafter.

I never thought of it as being rare or collectible...just as being very wet.

Perhaps you're thinking of 'one atmosphere' of pressure (14.7 psi). Our resident nitrogen expert (///M-rated) hasn't chimed in here. Perhaps he will comment.

If it was, we all be dead. Anything below 19.5% Oxygen is considered deficient. Nitrogen is about 78% at sea level.

I think this may explain a lot about SoCal. Oxygen deficiency!
