Mein Auto: 530i
After market rear view camera/sensor

I have a 2004 530i. I do not have navigation or sensors currently. What is the best front and rear view sensors/cameras on the market today that would fit?
Thanks in advance.
Jeff

Thanks Bigsal. Is there such a thing as an after market product that utilizes the sensors instead of cameras? Much like on new cars today...

I installed distance sensors on the rear bumper with an audible beeper mounted on the speedo shelf.
Works great.
Any 12 volt acessory shop can install them.

I just received the modmynav kit but have not yet installed it. The parts look very pro, basically like oem parts, not some cheap Chinese junk. Will report later after I get it installed on our 535 Touring.
