Tire pressure sensors

Does anyone know for sure if the new tire pressure monitors will be retrofittable to the 06 GT with the on board computer option? If so how much?
Thanks,

THe word I heard was yes. Can't recall if there was a price mentioned. My guess around $300.

Thanks,
BMW rep at the MOA Vermont rally was asked that and said it is retrofittable. No idea on the $$

I had those on my K12RS, and my tire specialist suggested to remove them: it could tear off or at least damage the rubber valve stem, since the centrifugal forces on the valves are very high due to the mass of the TireInspectors, as compared to the standard valve caps! In fact my rear valve stem was already bent to a noticeable degree, and I removed them afterwards.

Just FYI...
