Available in future as a standard feature: Tyre pressure indicator for each individual tyre.
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.
Sensors on all four tyres facilitate an exact and individual monitoring of the pressure in each individual tyre. The tyre pressure currently at hand will be shown in the Control Display or the instrument cluster, respectively, depending on the model and the equipment options customers have chosen.
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?
In 2015 BMW will reveal totally new bmw x6 and here are a few reasons to wait and get the new one:
1. Design. New BMW X6 will have a more agressive look. Something combined from X4 and X5 (F15).
2. Space. New BMW X6 will be larger and wider plus there will be more space inside.
3. Comfort. Many people complained about ride quality on current x6(e71). New X6 will have a different chassis, as I suppose based on F series thus ride will be more comfortable. Also there will be adaptive suspension as an option.
4. Performance. Bmw managed to obtain weight reduction by using some different material in car construction.
Finally I would say you will feel bad when just one year after you bought current BMW X6 (E71) new model will come out and I am sure you will like it.
For now I think getting an F10 530d xDrive is a great deal, it just got LCI and you can drive it for 1-2 years and then switch to new X6.
