    They look pretty similar. I like the idea of having the two at the front though. Where did you mount the control box

    They don't look aftermarket. I'm just a bit weary about drilling the bumper though. I'll colour code them before fitting to make it easier but i've never been keen on drilling holes where you can see.

    Drilling the bumper was very easy, the locations were marked out on mine with an O with a X in the middle.. Just drill a pilot hole in from the back and then go through from the front with the hole saw.. two minute job.

    They look good too. how many coats of paint did you put on??
    My main concern other that drilling the bumper is where the display in the kits i looked at will go. all the 6 sensor kits have some sort of display with them

    i dont have the display just a sounder fitted into the boot space along with the controll unit, (fitted in rear wing area) and it took a couple of coat's of paint BUT from a distance and only a very fine coat each time
