Thanks to their superior power, agility, precision and particular versatility, the BMW X5 M and BMW X6 M exhibit superior performance in every situation.
Available in future as a standard feature: Tyre pressure indicator for each individual tyre.
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.
