    Default Parking sensors? Fitting question...

    Just a few questions before i fit them this morning...

    1- On the rear bumpers are the sensor loctions still marked out on the facelift?

    2-When drilling the holes do i A) Drill from the out side of the bumper OR B)Drill from the inside out?

    3- Have i read before that its good idea to use marsking tape before drilling?

    4- Use a high speed drill or slow speed?

    I really dont wanna mess my bumper up lol so just checking

    Any suggestions/tips are much appriciated as how2 i read doesnt cover the drilling side? maybe i'll do my first detailed How2

    pilot with a small 3mm drill from the inside out, then use the holesaw from the outside in.....yes, put tape on the outer skin of the bumper and drill through it..

    slow speed is more likely to cut and not burn the plastic..slow is better here..

    iirc from when i fitted them to the 2.8 they are still marked on the inside
