Fitted mine today - Ebay seller (based in Tun Wells UK) supplied two colour coded sensors and two mat black sensors so I could fit them in the factory fitted positions - only £14.99 delivered - included adjuster rings as well - easy to fit  

worst part was running the two cables from one side to the other internally but got there in the end

Very pleased with the finished result - will get some photos soon

Anyone have any idea what color would match Ford's "Midnight Sky" ?

 

Thanks,

The picture on the listing is reasonably accurate.

I can tell you Tonic Blue is a close enough match to Avalon

negendahl,

 

If you can't find a matching set, you can also spray paint them yourself if you happen to have colour coded paint. Just make sure you do this before installing them. This is not ok for every set of sensors so make sure you buy those that can be painted.

 

I did mine with the touch up kit and from up close they do look a bit sloppy, but from 1m (3ft?) away they look ok.
