F22 / F23 2 Series (2014 - Current)
The 2 Series coupe is the replacement for the E82/E88 1 series coupe. Production starts in November 2013 on the 228i (N20) and M235i (N55) coupes. Look for them in dealerships in February 2014. The convertible F23 2 series will follow in the fall of 2014.

2016 M235i run flat tires

These run tires are making me crazy! I continue to get a warning on my display for a low right front tire every couple of days. When I check the pressure which should be 34 psi - I get readings of 30 to 32 psi. Can this possibly be triggering at that value?
Dare I ignore these warnings I am so tired of checking tires every week.

You might have a higher baseline pressure, causing an alarm at a higher actual pressure.

When the car is completely cooled down (overnight) and before sunlight unevenly heats the four tires, you need to adjust the pressures to what they should be. Then, you need to reset the TPMS and drive the car immediately afterwards. The driving is needed to finish the reset process.

The newer TPMS's are smart, ask you what size tires you have, and decide what the baseline pressures should be. Those might not need to be reset.

If you're at 30 PSI and the baseline is 34 PSI, you're ~12% below what you're supposed to be. TPMS's usually trigger at 20% below the baseline pressures, but maybe that's changed with the newer ones.

Hey Autoputzer - that is just great info. I learned the hard way about resetting the system after reinflating.
Now, I have no idea how to find, access or adjust the TPM. All those menus make me nuts and so far I have never seen a menu item fot TPS info.

It depends on what version of iDrive you have. Look for "Vehicle Status," and drill down from there. I have to go on an errand in a little while. When I do, I'll see how it's done on my 2014. The F22 and the refreshed F10 came out in MY 2014, so they probably have the same version if iDrive. A friend's 2017 (refreshed) F22 has a newer version.

I have to reset the TMPS when I rotate the tires on my 2014. But, on the our 2018, it's smart enough to reset by itself (as long as I adjust the pressures when I'm doing the rotations).

Frau Putzer doesn't like dogs. So, our house is infested with cats, three of them. I called the first three that she came with "the stepcats." They're gone, and replaced with three more. I've changed my mind about cats. Some days, I enjoy them being around more than I enjoy Frau Putzer being around. Their favorite snacks are "Beachside Medley." That **** smells like the dumpster behind a fish market. We call them "beachie snacks." I didn't get any beachie snacks today, but CVS had Hershey's dark chocolate nuggets with almonds on sale. We call them "human beachie snacks."

On my 2014 535i, start on the main menu with "Vehicle Info." Then click on "Vehicle Status." On that screen there'll be a tire symbol marked "Reset."

TPM to auto putz

Hey Putz,
You were right on. My tires were all properly inflated but I still got the right front warning. So I found the reset and Bob's your auntie.

ps. Ali and Baba (twin male Siamese - if you please) begged me to ask if you have any cute lady cats seeking consortium?

There are three hot Tortie's on the Putzer estate. One got loose Tuesday. I found her next door, hanging in the bushes with her boyfriend who lives two doors down. They were just hanging out together. Usually, stranger cats want to kill each other. But, this one is more like a dog than a cat.

2016 M235i - TPMs again

Thanks to Autoputz I was able to reset TPM.
Now, I believe at one time I was able in the menu to see the actual tire pressures.
I have spent a lot of time trying to find that menu item.
I can find the page that shows all the tires and the notation for psi but there are no values filled it.
Am I dreaming or is it possible to find actual inflation psi and how to do that?

(Again, I am fighting a TPM that constantly shows a low tire when it is not)

Yeah, there might be a menu that shows tire pressures, but it was turned off in non-M cars of that era. It's possible that it can be turned on with coding, and somebody did that. My 2014 doesn't do that, though. There's always the possibility of a bad TPMS sensor.

My '15 228i Conv has the Tire Pressure system enabled, however I was able to code the tire temp sensor to work via Bimmercode.

TPM on 2016 M235i

I seem to recall seeing a screen that showed the 4 tires and the actual tire pressure for each

Now that screen shows no values.

Am I imagining things?

In our former 2013 F30, I was getting a low pressure warning about once/week with one of the tires. There was no nail/screw visible and the loss was slow enough I was topping it up once/week about 3-4 lbs. At the next car service, I mentioned the slow loss of air; they checked and found the nut that attaches the valve stem was loose. No more issues after that was tightened.

Thanks to MB67 - nice video - I did get this far - as in the video no actual pressure values are shown but I am sure I have seen them. Imagining things?

Thanks AndDown - good call - sounds like my problem. I will check the nut.

Guess I have to phone BMW on Monday to see if actual pressure values can be found on the screen as I thought.

If your car has been sitting, you have to drive a bit before tire pressure and temps will show.

Thanks IMTJM - I hope that is the solution because I was sure I saw them at some time.

If this works a very WELL DONE to you.

I phoned BMW and they "thought" the values should show but had no idea how to do it.

should be Vehicle Info > Vehicle Status > Tire Pressure Monitor Or My Vehicle > Vehicle Status > Tire Pressure Monitor, depending on which iDrive version you have.

Drive about one mile and the tire pressure values should show.

TPM continued

Hi Yanks - can it be that simple?
Can you tell me how to access and use the Onboard Assistant?
I am not familiar with it. Is it a phone call from the vehicle?

Ugh!

Just hit a pothole yesterday that took out both tires on the passenger side. That makes a total of three since mid-July and six or seven - I've lost track - that I've had to replace in not quite
3 1/2 years of ownership. Just venting, but am all ears if anyone has any practical suggestions.

Maybe not the most practical, but move to Georgia which has, according to a study by CNBC, the best maintained roads in America
