Canadian x1 do not have TPMS sensors, they rely on the ABS system to provide differential data to determine a low pressure situation, so you do not need to spend the money. I have the navi on mine and it does not have or show individual pressures for each wheel which is the case for cars with TPMs and Navi. I will get some pics soon, but in my opinion they look good!

If so, you used an 09 528 as the reference and they work? I was thinking I'd have to try a 2011 model as I believe BMW changed TPMS sensors mid 2010)

Anyhow probably looking at about a $400 difference.. BMW is offering free storage of the summer wheels ("$200 value".. uh huh) so it does narrow the gap a bit.

I would love to see photos of these wheels on an X1 as I must admit I'm not confident on how they're going to look which has given me pause to pulling the trigger, but of the offerings I've seen on TireRack for wheels, other than OZ's (2-3 times the price) I'm not sure anything else appeals to me either.
