you can (and should transfer) the sensors (dunno about the valves and if they're integral to the system) if you want to keep your tyre pressure monitoring.

If you don't, your car will beep at you tellin you that you have no pressure in the tyres.
Reault can disable the tyre pressure monitoring system though (check ownership problems).

I was looking at the valve stems but couldnt see any coloured rings....they just look like plain valves, do they all have the sensors fitted..?
