Trying to fix mine, as i'm missing all 4 front sensors. Previous owner replaced the bumper for a non-original and the sensors are not there.
Original ones are pricey.
Thanks for the feedback
I have several BMWs with PDC and I have purchased a few sensors on eBay to replace ones that have failed. A few were used OEM and a few were non-OEM. Turns out, the reason they fail is usually because the plug gasket seal leaks so if you buy used ones/ be SURE the gaskets are intact. I've had both OEM and non-OEM sesors installed for 2+ years now and none have failed.
Hope that helps!
