    hey guys, looking to colour code my parking sensors, i think a few of them are broken so spray painting the existing ones doesnt seem worth it.

    can anyone recommend a decent brand that come in bmw titan silver? also how easy are these to replace?

    Hmm for the effort I'm not sure it would be worth it, your best bet would to just get your current ones fixed, or you could try and find some parking sensors off a 325ti as I believe they came with slightly more silver bumper trim

    hi mate there easy enough to replace just take out the inner boot liner the plastic bit and you will see the mounting bolts for the bumper 2 bolts on each side then pull the bumper off then you will see the reversing sensors

    If you really wanted to, you could actually just remove them and get a normal bumper strip without the parking sensor holes

    if yours are broke mate then just get a used set that work from a scrappy and get them sprayed.. with something as small as a parking sensor you could spray them yourself..

    I think you'll struggle big time to get ones to match your car..

    me too, I have no need for a rear window anymore lol!

    spraying your sensors will not make a blind bit of difference mate..

    I sprayed mine because I didn't want black ones in an all blue m sport bumper and they work exactly the same as before
