Default ZW5's installed on my MB E350

Just installed my ZW5's.. Do you think my sensors are in the correct location?

Looks good but may be more effective if they were spread out towards the headlights a tad more. Not sure if you can move them another 2-3" out or not though.

I installed mine closer to the headlights which will be the target for laser. There's nothing in your grill that they will be able to target quickly - they go for big shiny reflective portions of the front of the car. Also, make sure your sensors are the same - you have one side bubble in and the other side bubble out.

The sensors MUST be facing forward as specified in the manual.

Not true. Chrome is highly reflective surface and with police training stating to shoot center mass first a laser will have no issues getting a reading from shinny chrome as same as it would get from headlights.
I would also move them few inches closer to headlights from where they are but I believe I already suggested that on another forum.
