    I thought the whole point of those electromagnetic type sensors was to avoid having to remove the bumper to drill any holes, as it usually just a strip that sticks on inside the bumper or sometimes behind the number plate. I dont think you need to remove the bumper matey.... Do you?

    Bumper has to be removed as you need a bit of room to put the strip in the right location

    I have heard they are not very good. Get the cisco ones from Ebay, at <£20. What colour is your car?

    Vehicle : Vectra C Hatch

    Trim : Exclusive Plus Pack

    Engine : 1.9 CDTi Z19DTH

    Year : 57

    Mileage : 100k+

    Or these ones if you want a display too. Was going to say they were even cheaper - they were £10 when I got mine but seem to have crept up.
