They import them from the EU , all original, where they are much cheaper.

They export used car parts, specifically Mercedes, which are cheaper here than elsewhere.
I was just about to mention that when buying a spare wheel, you also need to buy the jack and a wheel brace.

There are two types, direct and indirect, one uses the sensor in the tyre, which sends a signal to the cars computer if it senses a drop in pressure, the other type uses the cars abs system to detect a lower speed in that wheel, if the tyre pressure drops and again sends a message to the ecu, and warn the driver..
