    Message the guy a explain that you wanted black so left it as default but got silver!, just add that he comes highly recommended by members of a vauxhall owners forum & you should be ok! (he's dealing with my faulty box at the mo & knows 'a vx owners forum member' has spoken to him).

    Heres mine fitted, Gadgetman sensors. Quite a few people used these. No problems so far spot on.

    I did choose bright red as my car is flame red and they were a perfect match. But i did have a little help from Keithy who ordered them before me , as he had the same colour car.

    Hope you get them changed mate.

    No, very easy to fit.
    Just mark out the holes and drill a very small pilot hole and use an inspection mirror and look up the back inside of the bumper to make sure its in the correct place.
    On the inside are indents of a circle, just make sure the hole is as close to the middle as possible.
    When your happy use the cutter that comes with the kit, just drill nice and gently letting the cutter do the work.

    Fit the sensors and connect up the wiring.

    On the inside of rear bumper there are markings where Vauxhall sensors fit
    so no need to measure.
    Also on facelift cars these have to be wired through a bypass relay because of canbus throwing up a bulb fault.

    Not necessarily - may depend on type of bulb failure system I guess, but no problem on my facelift without a relay.

    If you had searched for gadgetman you would have got your answer.

    Just for info, the Vauxhall holes are bigger than most of these after market kits. I just got a replacement bumper after being rear ended, and I suppose they thought I had sensors, so they sent a bumper pre-drilled. Now I have to pad out my sensors to fit the holes. Can't be bothered to get an undrilled bumper now that the new one is on.
