      Here is what I have and planning to install on Indigo.

      TPMS400 from Directed Electronics/Valet

      • The sensor is battery powered and replaces the original tyre valve stem -Recommended installation on alloy wheels(with tubeless tyres).
      • Remote receiver module (can be hidden) and Graphic LCD Display
      • Measures individual Tyre Pressure & Temperature. Also displays tyre rotation
      • Self-Check after each vehicle start
      • Fast Leakage Warning - Can detect simultaneous multiple leakages too
      • High Pressure/Temperature Warning
      • Adjustable pressure and temperature threshold settings


      Let me know if you want any additional details.
      I'm not too familiar with the Chinese TPMS products to comment but I'd be a little wary of their poor quality in general since a valve failure could be critical.
      You should be good if you can stick with a well known brand (even if they are made in China) than some no-name Chinese crap.

      Side Note: My Tucson is retrofitted with a different kind of TPMS sensor (BMW OE) and a DIY wireless receiver and interface to work directly with the CarPuter. The screenshots that you see in the Nitrogen vs Normal Air thread are from the Tucson install.

      Damn...Fiest alloy wheels fitment on Tata Indigo has hit a snag!!! Ford Fiesta uses lug nuts whereas Tata Indigo uses lug bolts!
      Now I need to find an appropriate lug bolt or do a lug-nut to lug-bolt conversion!!! Why don't these damned manufacturers ever standardize such simple things?

      And that's not just the only difference. Even the hub diameter seems to be different . Tried fitting them today at Sai's and its a NO GO!

      So much for the trouble of going to Chennai, Pick these alloys from NAGA, Get a burst tyre and another one punctured on the way back, 2 bend rims and one missing wheel cap...

      Lesson learnt: Do proper research before cross-shopping for vehicle parts.

      The impossible hunt for original Indigo alloys begins...
