The first and second generation of the Schrader 10438853 are not interchangeable. The body shape of the second generation Schrader 10438853 is remains the same as the first generation, factory equipped sensor. However, the internal components have been changed.
A second generation Schrader 10438853 in a 97-00 C5 Corvette will not function properly unless the rest of the sensors are second generation models.
Schrader has announced that it has produced its 200 millionth TPMS sensor, marking an important date in the history of the often-overlooked tire pressure monitoring system.

All Audimodels produced in 2011 and up will be equipped with an Indirect TPMS system. What’s the difference from the tire pressure monitoring system that previous Audi models used?
An indirect TPMS system measures tire pressure by monitoring the individual rotational speeds of each tire. For example, a tire that is low on pressure spins at a slower speed than a tire that is filled to factory specifications.
A direct TPMS system uses tire pressure sensors mounted in each wheel to take tire pressure readings and then relay those readings back to the vehicles TPMS receiver unit.
