Please don't take that as offensive!! I hope to come across as a joke. I haven't learned emojis well on here as of yet. My apologies Andrew.

Actually the emoji you used isn't the offensive part. It's the Captain Obvious part of your post. We show each other respect here, especially those who have earned it, so please follow suit.
That was the intent. Not off to a good start on the forum :/

Thank you Captain obvs. I was unaware there was a splitter for TX sensors.:doh: A quick search yielded an answer but you beat me to a follow up.
I didn't see your Emoji for the 'DOH'. I was going to come back to you on that comment. Luckily I read the entire thread before posting.

All is good.

I appreciate a community running on those standards, I intend to uphold them.

Previous forums ive used allow ";" but I can't seem to get these working

Thanks for the pics on your F32. When I purchase TX sensors I'll do a similar install on my F30 msport

Team,

I had the pleasure of testing my setup with Andrew yesterday against the TruSpeed S and DragonEye. He was not able to get a single punch through on my front or rear. I figured it was worth sharing the sensor locations for those of you wondering about good placement on a BMW. At first I was concerned my TX heads were too recessed but the setup proved to be incredibly effective.

I have the active grille on my 2018 540i, would that stop me from doing this setup? Are your grilles active?

If I recall correctly the factory sensor is only in one of the two kidney grills. You should be able to use the Tx in the one that doesn't have the factory sensor.

My grills are not active but I’m dreading my next car due to these grills. They even have them on the 3 series now.

Hi Arcome, I am new to the forum. I have a few questions for you about your front sensors, how did you mount them to the slats in the grill?
Did you use the brackets provided or did you have to fabricate some?
I have the same car and I plan on installing my ALP this week.

Thanks

I am not certain what was used in this application, however 3M double sided adhesive or Sugru works for me and many members here.

Sugru can be molded into different shapes and thicknesses to allow to keep the heads on the proper planes.
