    where are you planning on mounting them? last post I saw someone said about drilling into the black(grey) strip

    do you have specific measurements for locations

    probably the sea grey for the colour

    I was planning to fit them on the painted area of the bumper above the black trim. I think I read somewhere that the bumper is already pre-marked where to drill the holes.

    You can always paint the sensors - I did mine with a paintbrush and touchup paint. The saloon/hatch bumper is very different to the estate bumper, so I recommend you read the discussions linked to in the two howto articles on fitting parking sensors. On the saloon/hatch, the locations are indeed marked and the whole job of fitting the kit is very simple. I did mine in well under an hour (even stopping for a cup of tea part way through).

    I don't think so specifically, but certainly at least one of the discussions turned to the subject of estates and went on for ages about where to put the sensors.
