Does anyone have any experience with a Tire Pressure Monitoring system, like Smartire?

Also, has anyone seen the TPMS on the Z4? Could this be retrofit to the current 3-series?

The system currently on the Z4 is available in the overseas market AND on the E46 M3. Retrofit is possible for ANYTHING...You can even retrofit an additional 100 hp on a 330i by swapping the motor out for an M3 motor. :dunno:

Don't know about the US but in Canada for 2003 the tire pressure monitoring system was added as an option on the 330ci .

Run flats and pressure monitor system came standard on my 03 330xi.

What a pain, too. I put new rims/snows on for winter.
I get a yellow "tire" light after about 10 miles complaining that the system can't find the sensors in the wheels....

I've tried all the "hold this down" baloney, but it keeps coming back.

Looks like if I switch to aftermarket summer rims, the sensors have to go with them to keep the system happy.
