BMW X3(F25) 20i vs 20d, which one to choose?

So you decided to buy an X3 (F25) LCI which at the moment of writing can be bought with discount because the new generation was just presented (G01) and if it is not mandatory for you to get the new G01 you can buy the F25 LCI which is a very good car and as we know usually LCI versions have some improvements over the first versions.

Tyre pressure indicator for each BMW

Available in future as a standard feature: Tyre pressure indicator for each individual tyre.

TPM - tyre pressure monitor on BMW M3

TPM – tyre pressure monitor on BMW M3 2009

If until now some BMW drivers were checking tyre pressure manually the new owners won’t have to do that.

Starting with spring of 2014 drivers of all new BMW’s will have tyre pressure indicator offered as a standard equipment with the exception of the BMW X6.

The only thing is that I hope it won’t be annoying to the driver, if for example you are somewhere where you can’t pump wheels at this very moment.

What is your experience with BMW Tyre Pressure sensors?
