Default New Panamera 4 owner - need TPMS advice

Hello all,
I recently bought a 2011 Panamera 4 for my wife (Christmas gift). I used to own a 01 Boxster but sold it. I just want to get tied back into the forum, ask questions and share knowledge.
I'm putting new wheels and tires on the Panamera but want advice on the TPMS stems...where should I get them (Ebay, dealer, etc??) and what should I be paying?? Anyone advice.

Thanks!

Online for sure. Not dealer price. You can search online and get the OEM manufacturer for a fraction of the price. You ll pay hundreds more at dealer.

Tire Rack is a good source for the OEM Huf sensors.

Hi. I’m a new member as well. I bought my Panamera 4S last spring. It came with straight summer tires so I sourced out 20” OEM wheels and purchased winters. I then needed TPMS and I had the same question as you. I started with the dealer and then Suncoast Porsche on-line. So expensive. After researching I learned that Porsche TPMS is made by Huf. If you source Huf branded sensors on-line you wil save $$$. I used ShopTPMS.com (I have no affiliation with them). I called my dealer first to get my OEM part number so I could source the correct sensors. I got Huf Intellisense sensors. All four including valve stems cost me $140 shipped. I’m using them right now on my car and they work perfectly. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Yes sir...I found Huf TPMS for Porsche on Ebay for $149. They should arrive next week along with my new wheels and tires. I'll post before and after once it's done. My wife really doesn't care about wheels but I just like the look of 20s on the Panamera (it's a big sporty sedan). Thanks!!

Beru is also OEM and may even be part of Huff FYI

I believe Huf bought out Beru. Older Porsches likely came with Beru. Likely all Huf branded now.
