    I'm pretty sure on all e46's the necessary wiring would be factory fitted behind your original bumper.. so it'd be the same as retrofitting fog lights for example.

    Check this first obviously but if thats the case just buy a set of 4 parking sensors, should cost much from a breakers yard or check ebay??

    This is for the E36 but the principle is the same...

    This guy used the OE bumper moulding for his E36 retrofit...

    Not true im afraid... I tried to put front fogs on mine and the wiring wasn't there.. So they just look cool..
