    Hi mate, I bought these ones and they fitted behind the bumper in front of the impact bar.

    But to make sure they did, I rolled up some playdough and put that where the sensor positions are on the back of the bumper and put the bumper back on to see for sure they would.

    No sorry mate no pics, I also used a small powered sander sort of thing and recessed them in a bit further at the top so they sat a little more plush and didnt need to use the spacers to point them up, although, TBH they sit pretty much square when fitted.

    But the Playdough thing is a must TBH, just to make sure! LOL

    All Vectra bumpers are marked on the back for the correct positions for the parking sensors.

    There are also two different crash bars available for the Vectra estate and Signum. One for parking sensors and one without.

    The only difference is that the crash bar has holes in it.

    Mine didnt have the holes in the crash bar, but luckily the gap with the curve along the middle of the bar was deep enough for the sensors to sit in.

    The parking sensors on the estate fit in the bottom plastic trim, not the bumper itself. There are markings in the rear of the trim for guidance on where to position the sensors
