That's a good point!!!
from what I've read the bracket from USmillworks.com can be adjusted to where the PDC sensors can be cleared.

not at all....it fits the majority of the BMW models.....
I just ordered a bracket from:
www.usmillworks.com

and they sell you the bracket based on the model & year of the car, and if the front of the car is a "regular nose" or "M nose" & if the car has PDC or NOT.

It's all good... Not everyone has to like everything. This is just an option for those that don't want to drill holes into the bumper..
I believe there is one that hides under the big gap of the
Nose it has a motor. It doesn't fully hide on the M bumper but that is the other option other then drilling a standard bracket.

I got one of these. It seems kinda flimsy but so far no problems, even going through cars washes

Agreed. A member here made a magnetic one, which is also a great idea, especially for those of us with clear bras.

I'd love the electronic hide away one but people say it sticks out. The skeene one looks ok but seems like a DIY answer.

If you could figure something out, you'll make some $$$
