    Is it a retrofit kit..? If so then you'll be fine, as they are designed to fit as is once you've drilled the hole in the bumper.

    as above
    and if you take the bumper off you will see four marks on the inside of the bumper for the sensors to go

    Marks look like a rectangle with an x inside it. Everything you need to know on the position of the sensors is here - http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=100352

    that how they are to be with the face of the sensor sitting on/through the bumper.no gaps or any-thing.
    it hard to explain but the sensor face is slightly domed which gives it the 2mm

    I believe the flush mount ones have bits which fit behind the bumper while most of the aftermarket ones are designed to clip into the bumper.
