As others have said the 328i is a BMW 3 series and the ATEQ VT55 OBDII TPMS is a 5 series. The 5 series is a bigger car and generally has a better specification. It is more expensive to run though.

Although the 5 series was more expensive new, they depreciate faster than the 3 series so used you can generally get a 5 series for less than a 3 series.

Then, how we make money is up to us
