    Full set OEM here.

    What measurements are you after - positions ?

    If you take the bumpers off you'll find the drilling points quite clearly moulded in.

    TBH after doing the back with the bumper still in place it will take you longer to measure and mark up than it will to just remove the front bumper.

    Locations - from the outside I'm guessing you'd need someone with the exact same front bumper as you have. Given how easy it is to remove the bumper, it's really not worth risking mis-measurement.

    Activation - with the OEM fit system both front and rear are active at the same time, initiated by selecting reverse or by overide switch below the hazard lights switch. System auto cancels when moving forward over 15mph.

    I retrofitted factory front parking sensors and had the wiring behind the swtch. Andy.l kindly fitted the wiring to the rec/module then had a quick tech2 session to sort them out. I already had the factory rear sensors.
