It's a pretty spiffy foldable chair, but if you're, say, 6' 2" and 210 lbs, you may not find this chair comfortable. At least I didn't. Waiting on a Kermit right now.

A guy on the BMWMOA site dug out the old battery on a TPM sensor and replaced it. IIRC, it was a wafer, maybe a CR024. It's "sealed" with some kind of goop but it can be defeated.
