    Same place I got mine from, I bought mine in black then rubbed them down with some scotch bright, then LIGHTLY primered them and went to Halfords and bought a Sliver Lightening rattle rattle can, and wafted over the sensors with the paint till a good colour match is achevied, hair dryer them, then a light dusting of laccuquer and hair dryer them again! Job done! I used Halford paint as it's a better match than vauxhall paint!!!! (thats in my case) and remember theres marks in the rear bumper for fitting the sensor!

    You don't need any pins mate to wire in , just cut into your reverse light for a positive and find yourself a negative back there also , job done

    Try emailing them mate. I got mine from same place told them my car colour and code, they recommended the nearesr blue and the colour match is spot on you'd think they'd been CC'd.

    Thanks mate
    did you use any of the Eight sensor angled spacer rings or were they not needed for vectra bumpers?
