Tpms

Curious: I bought a set of tire valve caps for my 550i. The oem ones have something written on them about TPM system. Are the oem caps an important part of that system, or will any caps work?

Any cap will work, the issue is when having the tires serviced at a shop they need to be aware that there are TPMS sensors in there and take caution not to damage them.

Thanks for the response. I'm always in favor of "function over form" when it comes to accessorizing. Glad to know the logo caps will work, though.
