    Hi and please any help on this issue, I have had a search but not found anything so far.
    I would like to fit genuine parking sensors to a 2000 e46 323ci.
    I am hoping to find out whats needed. Is there any wiring loom allready in the rear? replacement bumper? What is involved really.

    Many thanks.

    Ditto ime thinking about doing the same.All i know is you dont have to replace the bumper cause the sensors are in the black griile section.Ime in the car body repair trade and usually there are marks where you can drill out the holes.Knowing bmw there is probably a wiring plug at the rear to plug sensor loom in.

    Unfortunatly there is no plug, in order to retrofit you need the full kit from BMW which is pricey as there is a seperate module required. The best way to do it would be to bit an aftermarket kit, remove your bumper and drill out the stock holes fit the sensors and run the cables to somewhere like under the centre console.

    I've bought a kit which I intend to fit however my baby has just been born and with that and the weather getting colder I'm going to wait until next year now to fit them, when I do though I will take pics and write a how to!

    There was me thinking it would be easy! I cannot understand why it never had them with all the extras it has, maybe was to early. Since reading the replies I have gone out and stuck my head under the bumper and cannot see where any drill pionts would be. I dont want to change the year of the bumper so may need to check out others when I see them but seem to think I have seen then in the black strip.

    What do you do? its a very nice original example 2000 323, start to modify and m sport it with the bumpers? I am a newbie so need to see more E46's
