My retired 08 535i had the TPMS with the sensors mounted inside the rims and the pewter-coloured valve caps. Tires were not run-flats.
However, my 2012 535i x-Drive only has the FTM, no sensors etc.
Is this the case with all F10s or just 2012s or just my car? Tires are run-flats. No Sport or M-sport. March 2012 build.
The U.S. owners talk about TPMS but not FTM. Of course, both systems are listed in my paper manual but interestingly only FTM is mentioned in my on-board owners manual.
So, FTM or TPMS?
