Aftermarket PDC

Hello dear BMW friends!
I have tried to search for this question, but did not really find what I was looking for so I ask for your advise in a new post!

I have a 325ti Compact, which I would like to install aftermarket PDC.

I have two options.

1. Buy a new M-sport rear bumper and use existing PDC holes in these.
The challange here would be that I do not know if aftermarket PDC do fit in those pre-drilled PDC holes?
Question: Do anyone knows the dimensions of the PDC holes for the M-sport bumper? Like below link:


2. second option is to only replace the centre stip only.
I found part code: 51-12-7-003-811
Then I donīt know if the aftermarked PDC do fit any good in the pre-drilled PDC holes.
Do you have any idea about the dimensions for the pre-drilled PDC holes for the centre stip in original bumper?

Any general comments about aftermarket PDC?


BR / Olliie

Or figure out if you can use OEM PDC sensors with an after market system.

Get a Dynavin headunit and install a reverse camera instead.
