Had a question and I'm too lazy to read the thread.
I have a 16 340i and I have noticed if the tpms light is on, the car will not allow you to be in sport/sport+ mode and car seems to be in a comfort mode. Is there a way around this?

I plan on tracking the car and putting on wheels and tires without tpms, I'm assuming that without sensors it'll put car into similar mode?

Not sure if you ever got an answer to your question but I'll take a stab at it. In my former 320, the light was on due to actual pressure loss and it wouldn't let me go into sport at all. I'm having an issue w/ my 340 now w/ new wheels and the shop put in new sensors but they're not reading. I have the light on but still able to use sport and sport plus. So my guess is if you do have a low or flat tire, you get locked out of sport/sport plus. But that doesn't happen if the car just isn't able to read the sensors.

So I should ask then for the F30, what is the compatibility like with these things? What year is compatible with what other years? Can an a sensor from a 18" stock be installed on a new 19in wheel?

Has anyone had any experience with Tire Rack TPMS sensors? They appear to be much cheaper @ $56 each than the OEM BMW parts.... BAVauto seeing for $100 each or 4/$356.

Cheers in advance!

My car is a 1/2014 build, so I believe the correct kit to get is the Huf RDE017? At least that's what I was told by the vendor when I bought wheels from them 2 years ago. Just getting to throwing them on now...

My stockers definitely look lke the HUFs...
