    Just went to Oakville to pick up my TPMS and centre cap order and to my and the service guy's surprise, Tesla just doubled the price of the TPMS. :(

    TPMS = $136 CAD + HST each
    TPMS sensor nut = $5.71 CAD + HST each
    Center cap = $7.14 CAD + HST each

    Can get sets off ebay for less than half that price.

    Ya I was already there and was caught a bit off guard... and I drove like 100km to get there. I should have asked the price beforehand. I just assumed the old price and this was just recently increased.

    If my car is the old style, would the car show the pressure for each tire individually if I sourced the newer style off ebay?

    I thought the receiver setup changed along with the sensors.

    Surprised about the 2012-2017 year range. I thought I read they changed.

    Any experts know for sure?

    From what I recall the switch was made somewhere just above the 50000 VIN, like 54000?

    I I buy these off eBay for model X do I need any other part from Tesla? Or just this goes on aftermarket rims?

    No, I had the retrofit done on mine and the receiver+wireing harness had to be replaced as well for it to work.

    Thanks. That sounds like a $500+ ordeal...

    Yes, I recently bought a new set of center caps and noticed the price raised from $5 to over $7 since I last bought a set. But that's all you really need from Tesla and you don't need to buy OEM on ebay. There are universal sets -- just check your VIN since Tesla changed them a couple years back. Then you just use the settings in the car to program them as you drive -- it provides instructions on screen. Teslas can read up to 8 sensors so you don't have to reprogram when you switch your summer/winter rims.

    That's not what I've experienced with our vehicle. Most of the time that I do a switch over between our winter and summer wheels I forget to reset the TPMS. Well, at least until the vehicle nags me, and then it's a simple task of driving 40km/hr (or something like that) for 5 minutes or so. It's very straightforward.

    Note that this is on a 2013 Model S with the earlier version of the TPMS that does not display tire pressures on the dash.

    Wow! I was fortunate enough to pick up 2 sets of sensors from a trip thru Portland Oregon, recently and they cost $160 USD per set and the sleeves/nuts for $1each. I thought I was saving just the taxes so I bought a few things at the Tesla SvC while I was there.
