Tire PSI

I just checked my tire psi and they were all at about 27-29psi. I used a analog tire pressure guage.

How come the tire pressure monitoring system didn't indicate that the pressure is low?
When I add more air to bring the psi up to spec, do I have to update it in the iDrive also?

1. The TPMS works by monitoring the difference in rotation (therefore, tire circumference) of the front left tire vs the rear right, and the front right vs the rear left, ie. diagonally. Why this way? I don't really know, maybe someone else can answer that. So, if all the tires were to lose pressure at the same rate at the same time, then no alarm would sound. Hmmm, remind me not to drive thru a road that is completely filled with nails....

2. Yes. It may also be on your OBC stalk by the steering wheel.
