    iv bought an e46 sport bumper with holes for parking sensors. the parking sensor kits are easy enough to get, but they are all black- is it ok to colour code them to my bumper when im getting it sprayed, or will this mean they wont work at all?

    cheers in advance!

    yeah there has been a few posts abot this, like shaft says too much paint will just make them constantly beep as they think that the paint is a surface to hit!

    If they're just in the bumper trim i think you'll be ok if you just tell them to put a steady light coat on it - however slight scratches will go straight through.
