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?
