TPMS Sensors

Mon Nov 02, 2020 5:58 pm

Hi,

Has anyone purchased after market X5 TPMS sensors from a reliable source? I really don't want to be paying £90 x 4 sensors for OEM parts, given they are for my winter wheels.

Anyone bought from an Ebay supplier and had a good outcome? Prices are definitely cheaper but is the quality decent?

Part number is: 36106881890 36106856209

Thanks,
Raj

Quick check and these come up as a possibility as it's £100 for the set of 4:

Thanks for the link.

I just checked with the Ebay supplier and they say this part won't fit my car - even though the part number matches up. Confusing!

But if the part numbers match then not sure why they'd say they aren't compatible :headbang:

Agreed :D

If the part doesn't work on my car though it's a costly exercise as I incur fitting costs from my garage and I'm no further forward :(
