    I knew my parking sensor was gone [well at least one] whenever I put her in reverse and there was a single tone. Left it to my mate who runs a garage and he confirmed one of the middle ones is gone. BMW quoted him £115 for one. He suggested ebay.

    Two questions - what sort of spec am I looking for on ebay [any advice] and could I just paint it with some colour coded body paint I have in one of those little bottles? Apologies if those sound stupid questions but I've never come across anything like this before.

    Many thanks for any help

    Cheers not sure if that's advice to buy or not to buy I have found a few around £30 - it wouldn't be the end of the world if it didn't work - I'd just send it back anyhow...

    dont buy! buy cheap buy again

    i sent my original back for a refund, bought two more from ebay and collect he was local, neither worked,

    then i think i bought one more off ebay and that didnt work either,

    bought one from the dealer for £100 and it worked straight away,

    So out of four sensor, none worked,
