Hi, is it a hard job to fit parking sensor front and rear to a 2005 3.0 z4.

OEM - rather difficult as you need new rear bumper, sensors, PDC module, loom and at the front a crappy number plate incorporating 4 sensors.

Aftermarket is easy and many have done it. Think the favoured route is the foil strip on the inside of the bumper, but just await someone to post or search Amazon/ebay for a kit

If you are going to retrofit then go for cobra sensors, they look better than OEM

Somebody on here fitted then and they looked great.

Edit, found the post

SR - you need to edit the link to the post. It's a duplicate of the ebay link
