Not sure what ICM means, however, I can tell you they were in the same box as my OEM grills and OEM reflectors

Oh really? Hmmm, interesting. Thanks all! So that's what the tire pressure sensors look like
Wonder what the hell they're doing in the box... then again...they DID tell me the tire pressure sensors in my 19 inch rims that I bought from my 2009 328 coupe back when would not work with my 2011 335 when I bought the car...

Well I guess they're recycled TPMS sensors now...
Can they be taken off without being fubared?

Yeah, the FCC marking kind of gives the transmitter away. I'm not too smart on electronics, but I'd love to know how they tune them for individual cars so that two E90's parked next to each other don't cross TPMS signals.

you can have the battery checked at most tire shops
