Run winter tires without TPMS?

In my current car, I have a separate set of wheels with winter tires on them, and I switch them back and forth myself with the seasons. But the winter wheels don't have TPMS sensors, so I just deal with the TPMS light being on through the winter. The only impact on that car (Honda Odyssey) is that it won't let you disengage the traction control.

If I do the same with the M3, and have a set of winter wheels with no TPMS sensors, is there any adverse effect?

I'd consider this...if ever there was a time when you would want advance notice of a leak and avoid a roadside tire change, would it be in the winter, or the other three seasons?

Eh, sure I could afford it, but I have no problem monitoring air pressures myself, so if there isn't a reason I'm not aware of that the M3 would have issues with no TMPS, then I'd probably just skip it, rather then spend $200 i don't need to.
