    Couldn't say if they have holes maked. Do Honda ever fit them as a factory option? A trick we used to do when coming across a car for the first time would take the measurements off one already fitted.
    If this was not an option then we'd leave the bumper on, mark the middle with some tape, measure 20 - 22cm (depending how wide the car was overall) either side of the middle point, mark these two points with more tape. Then measure a further 40 or 44cm and mark again. To make sure you should have three spaces of equal distance.
    Then either measure up from the ground or as the ground isn't necessarily level find a point of bumper like the bottom or top edge. Measure your height point and mark (Note if your sensors have a minimum height requirement!!!)
    Now to make even more sure I'd measure diagonally from a point like the corner of a light cluster to the sensor position just to make sure everything seems symetrical.
    Also it wont hurt to step back 10 feet or so to have a good look as I swear I've measured up in the past only to step back & it visually doesn't look right.

    Now if you're happy I'd crawl in underneath to check for any obstruction such as cross members. You may want to of check for this first of all.
    Most of the time we'd find fresh air behind the bumper.
    Drill a pilot hole where each of the sensors are going before proceeding with the hole saw.

    Hope this helps.
