For what it's worth, I'm not going with any protection on the rear at all. Besides the pain of installation, I have never been hit with laser from the rear in WA state (where we are laser happpy...they're everywhere), nor have I ever heard of anyone being hit from the rear. Not that it doesn't happen, it just doesn't happen enough for me to justify putting anything back there.
Agreed.

Come to think of it, I don't even know where I could mount the rear unit unobstructed in the rear of an E92...

no problem I have everyone cover, I already did the research and everything, I now exactly were and how I'm going to mount the laser heads.


just a head start, learn how to remove the lower kidney grills.

why? because laser heads are 50 more efficient when mount horizontally and yes they do work behind the grills (research)

I did not get any rear units, I think is a waste of money, but no you can't put the units behind the bumper, the only place will be under the license plate

There's no real room under the plate to put the rear unit, unless you removed the external handle to open the trunk. I have CA so I use that a lot. I ended up ordering just the unit, no extra heads. Unless anyone can come up with a better idea for the rear unit.
