FTM to TPMS Retrofit?

I have an 07 335i with a pre 07 production date (= no usb, 5 Station / Action buttons below radio, and no TMPS ) so i have the flat detection instead of TPMS.

Any way to retrofit?

Exactly! The only reason to have TPMS sensors would be to have individual tire pressures available from the OBC. Other cars (including my Boxster) do this - but BMW has not yet seen fit to include this basic function.

So stick with your FTM and enjoy the freedom from sensor hassles.
