    Hi Folks

    As title suggests Im looking to fit a set of Valeo rear parking sensors to my e46 320d. I had a slight knock to my rear bumper last week by another driver and as im getting bumoer resprayed I thought it would be a good time to get parking sensors colour coded and fitted. Can any one advise exactly where they should be positioned or provide pictures. I know some car manufacturers have marked the exact position on the rear of the bumper, is this the case for BMW?

    As always thanks for your endless knowledge and support, and happy new year to all

    Liam

    Does this help at all, or do you need more detail?

    I assume the first sensor is the first black disc in the line of four immediately above and to the left of the tailpipe, all being embedded in that black strip along the rear.
