    I own a "ContiComfortKit" that is an air pump that also has a latex injection system for a one time flat repair. Bought it for a prior car after I took off the crappy runflats.

    The unit is not recommended for certain types of tire pressure monitoring sensors, which would get ruined when coated with the latex. Does anyone know if this kit can be used in the Model S ? Also, what is the cost to replace a tire pressure sensor?

    I haven't replaced tires yet, but a neighbor replaced the tires on his Acura MDX and he said they quoted >$80/wheel for new sensors - which of course they recommended replacing with the new tires. He skipped it because he smelled a good ole fashioned up-sell.
