    Default Fitting an XP kit to an Estate with parking sensors...

    I have an Elite Estate which has parking sensors as standard and on the Vauxhall Accessories site they list the "Rear Lower Skirt" as not being suitable for cars with parking sensors. I have seen plenty of pictures of Estates with the XP kit and parking sensors (many of them on this site) however I am not sure if these were fitted as standard or as an aftermarket add on.

    Has anyone here fitted an XP kit to an Estate that had parking sensors? If so was there any special way to do it or do I need to try and locate a different spoiler or use a different part number?

    Thanks for the help.

    My old car was an SRI NAV XP estate (57 plate) and i ordered that new with the parking sensors front and back so they do make an XP valance for the estates, You just need the correct part number..

    Thanks, I had a chat with a dealer who sells the parts and he hasn't found a separate part designed specifically for cars with park sensors from standard, however he does have the VXR lower spoiler for an Estate (part #93199105).

    It appears that when it gets fitted I need to get the parking sensors relocated into the new spoiler that sits over the existing parts and then colour coded, so that should be interesting. There are a couple of other chaps on here looking at kits for their Estates and they may have the same questions so between we'll get the right answer ;-)

    If it turns out there is a specific part then that would be great, otherwise it'll be interesting to see what the ordered part looks like (I wonder if it will have guidance holes for the sensors like a lot of bumpers seem to have?).

    In any case I'm sure there's a solution to be had.
