    Looks about right, though I can't be 100% as mine are now inside tires so I can't look anymore. That said, Tesla only charged me $55 each (Canadian) so I bet that $45 isn't far off the Tesla price for them now.

    The new sensors are $50 at the SC. Not worth taking a risk to save $5 per sensor. Its the receiver that is expensive. That part cost $475, while the new wiring harness cost $81.

    All the parts total about $750. Labor totals $250, which included removing tires from rims, installing the new sensors, and mounting and balancing the tires on the rims (wheels), plus updating the firmware of the car to recognize the new sensors and receiver.
