I forgot to add Tyre Pressure Monitors and when I went to add them my order was closed off (yes, I live in a country where these are not included by default, which annoying). Bit of an oversight for around $400 bucks extra at the time of ordering.

Does anyone know whether I will be able to add these post-delivery? I don't know whether the receive unit is already in the vehicle but without transmit units in the wheels, or whether both have to be added?

The answer will likely be yes even if Tx and Rx needs to be added - just wondering if anyone else has recovered from this situation, either with the iX or any other similar BMW model.

Unless coding can be done it will have to be dealer retrofit $$$$. I retrofitted TPMS onto my F30 340i and G01 X3. All I needed were the wheel units and then coded the car. The receiver is already built in with these cars so I’m guessing the same with the iX.

Thanks for that - if the receiver is already in the car (as was the case with your F30 340i and G01 X3) then adding the units to the wheel should be pretty straight forward - they are not expensive. I hope it's the same with the IX.

It's not only hard to get a vehicle, it's equally hard (or harder) to get hold of someone / anyone that can provide good / knowledgeable information about them (hence the need for this forum).

Thanks again.

This wasn't an option to add or not in the US. Is it included standard? I didn't pay attention for that detail because I didn't imagine that a feature that is now standard on most $30K car would not be standard on a $100K one.

Just to round this thread out .. the dealer service department thinks it's really not possible to add these post-hence (though, I'm not convinced), but it's worth noting the system still has flat tyre detection, just not tyre pressure monitoring.
