Well, the strange things, when I got the aftermarket wheels + TPMS they are fine (I had to reset the TPMS on iDrive screen for the car to recognized them for the first time though my car is 2008 535i). Then 3-4 months afterward I got "TPM malfunction" , not low on air on one of the tires. Reset after reset, no go.

I believe they are RS Technik, cause the rep told me $200 extra for TPMS set, I doubt they are OEM BERU brand. The vendor advertised here so I doubt I am the only one having problem cause I bet many people bought these RS Technik TPMSes; unless something is up about these RS Technik
