Looks like the TPMS sensors for the Evora 400/410/430 have changed versus the S1 Evoras (completely different P/N).

Anyone know a part # for the the non-Lotus version of the TPMS sensor that is used on the Evora 400/410/430? The official Lotus P/N is A132G6017F.

Interesting, a couple of mine are acting unreliably at the moment...

Resurrecting this thread since I am looking for some too. I am assuming a tire shop can't just slap TPMS sensors on. Or is this the right part for a 400? https://www.tirerack.com/tpms/resul...utoModel=Evora+400&autoYear=2018&autoModClar=
Hi, did you manage to find a compatible tpms sensor for the A132G6017F etc. Have looked for a few days now and not found any. Phoned up a tpms uk specialist and they could not find any details for any to suit the elise/exige/evora post 2017/2018.

I had just picked up my winter tires this week. I will be mounting them this weekend, will let you know. I'm not sure where you're located, but I just ordered 433 Mhz TPMS replacements from Tirerack along with my tires. They were $50 each. I can see on Gregsraceparts they also sell individual ones for slightly more expensive ($63/each).

I see Tirerack have part number 20159 and on site Evora TPMS Sensors, there is no mention of the evora model years supported on either page, as the later ones have different sensors from 2017 ish. It will be interesting to see how you get on when you fit these.
I am in the UK and have asked a couple of tpms specialists about the late model evora's fittings and no one seems to know of a suitable after market option..

I went on a quick drive and they didn't configure. I would hold off on the ones to Tire Rack.

Goes to show how little research I do before buying stuff... I also got the wrong recommended sizes for winter tires! They are a different size from the Summer tires. I am learning a lot from the user manual.

I have heard that they take a while to be recognized, but i guess if they are the wrong ones then they will never be identified by the car. I am getting 4 new tyres fitted later this week, changing the cup 2's to 4S's for all year use, and will get them to note all the numbers off the sensors. Down here in the south west of England the weather dos not normally get snowy, so I could use the car occasionally all year.

If you're not getting separate wheels, there's no need for new TPMS sensors. Just re-use the old ones right?

I still haven't had a time to go out and drive yet. My guess is that the Evora must have special TPMS sensors since the per-tire view usually requires that right? Else it'll just be a TPMS light which tells you if one of your tires is low.

This week I have had 4 new 4S tyres fitted in place of the Cup 2's. Car feels more stable. TPMS were left fitted to the rims and are still working. The guys fitting them noted all the details and there are as the picture above posted by Julian73. So the ones in UK/USA are the same. Still have not been able to find any reference to them even on the Alligator web site. Have also emailed the manufacturer of my TPMS tool. If I find an aftermarket sensor then can fit the cup 2's to another set of rims. Would have thought that as lotus is now owned by the same company that owns volvo they might be one of them. The receiver for the TPMS looks to now be near the front of the car - may be behind the r/h lower panel near the drivers foot (UK..RHD.) (earlier models used to be in the boot).
Have read that the sensors transmit direction of rotation and the pressures etc so the receiver works out from that plus signal strength to show which one is which on the display. I think that all TPMS work in this sort of way but seem more advanced than others, I know my wife's RR evoque has 1 receiver that picked up the signals but with it you have to tell the car which sensor id is on which corner otherwise it gets confused. My Jeep Renegade was quite happy moving wheels around/ changing them etc and the car picked things up OK.

The TPMS system in my Land Rover LR2 is much stoopid. It won't learn at all, you have to hook up a tool and program it if you change them.

For my wife's RR evoque I bought a tool that could clone the sensors onto Autel MX ones, it appears that evoques built post 17.5 model year had the sensor system changed and that one pre that model year could handle things better.

Just went on 2 40 minute rides today and TPMS is not working. I may call Tire Rack and see if they have some sort of resolution for this. They say it's compatible and I blindly trust them.

I also went to the local "Lotus" dealership (really a Jeep/Dodge/Ram dealership) and they said they have no clue about the TPMS. I guess I'll have to look for a Lotus expert on these. Even though the manual says it just needs to be driven to be reset, I'm sure there's some process- especially if the display is showing individual tire pressures.

I have ordered a lotus sensor but without with the stem, as the tyre shop I went to, said they had a supply of stems that I am sure must be a lot less than the lotus price. So when it arrives I will see if they have a stem that fits, and can then get one of the cup2 tyres fitted to one of the new evora 400 rims I bought off ebay.. I suppose there are not too many post 2017 cars that are needing replacement TPMS yet.
