Tire Pressure Monitoring System

did the R129 ever have a TPMS?

if not, can it be put in? there are a few circumstances where that would have come in very handy!

haha i am sorry my friend, but this is something i need!

in the past year i have gotten 12 screws in my tires on my 3 cars. and each cars tires have only about 3k KM's on them...

luckily i noticed right away with the GLK and E for the TPMS but with the SL it went unnoticed for a little while.

to much damn construction going on in Vancouver.

ahh ive seen those before. i was hoping to find something more OEM as i like my MB valve covers! haha. i was hoping for something like the brake wear indicator.

it really seems odd to me they put on so many warning indicators like the "lamp failure" and "break pad wear" sensor. but then no "door open" or "tire pressure warning"

A cheap alternative would be to buy the vavle caps that monitor tire pressure, not pretty but they should do the job.

im really trying to avoid all those screen ones because they take up too much physical space. it is why i dont have any NAV system unless built into my GLK or E.

what would be nice is just a light that comes on, kind of like all the warning lights along the bottom.
