OEM BMW tool to punch perfect holes for PDC sensors?

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I was wondering if anyone here has heard of such a tool?

I'm looking to do both a rear and front PDC retrofit for my 2014 M-sport 328i, but my biggest fear in doing the work is that i'll mess up my bumper when drilling the holes for the PDC sensors.

I first heard of the tool in a thread about the rear-view camera retrofit from bimmer-tech (post #38), but googling around didn't turn up anything. I was wondering if anyone here has heard of such a tool, where it can be obtained if available, links, etc...

I was planning to just use a step drill bit for the work, but if there is something that is even more sure-fire, then i'll go with that.

Just use a hole saw. At least once you get the right size, you know they'll all be right.
