    I need to buy a second set of TPMS for my new P100D.

    Will the TPMS from a 2014 model S85 work? Or are they the "old" generation?

    Thanks for helping

    Usually, 2012 to 2014 are older TPMS that cannot display pressures individually.

    2015 and later can.

    And as you know the can and cannot don't mix.

    That's not exactly right.

    P85Ds built in December 2014 definitely have the newer TPMS sensors. I can't speak to other cars built in 2014.

    That's why I included the word "usual".

    Regardless of years: Whether your car can display 4 tire pressures individually or not.

    Some 2012 owners asked their Service Center to update to new set (both transmitters and receivers).

    Thus, you need to take the "year" 2012-2014 with a grain of salt.

    Ok! I got the exact now:

    2012 to 09/2014 with VIN 0 to P50900 has Baolong Part Number: 1010938-00-B

    09/2014 and later with higher than VIN P50900 has Continental Part Number: 1034602-00-A

    Can the newer sensors work with older cars?

    No. They are separate systems.
