    Looking for the Bosch Radar unit that mounts in the lower grill on October 2014 or newer cars.

    Also interested in any of the 12 parking sensors for same.

    So far 3 people have contacted me asking if I want these because I've figured out how to add Autopilot to an older car. No, I'm repairing damaged cars and need the parts.

    If you wanted to add autopilot to an older car, it's almost impossible. You'd first need to add these parts:
    1. Autoplilot Camera
    2. Front Radar
    3. Parking ECU
    4. Bosch iBoost braking system
    5. 6 Sonar sensors in front
    6. 6 Sonar sensors in rear

    Secondly, you'd then have to change these:
    1. Windshield (camera mount)
    2. 4 wheel speed sensors
    3. ESP Controller (ABS/TC)
    4. Entire front and rear bumper cover (will need painting)
    5. Lower radiator support
    6. Front grill
    7. Front bumper wiring harness
    8. Frunk area wiring harness
    9. Fusebox wiring harness
    10. Dash wiring harness
    11. Mid Body wiring harness
    12. Headliner wiring harness
    13. Rear body wiring harness
    14. Rear bumper wiring harness (Yes every wiring harness in the car except the Drive inverter harness)
    Sounds easy enough, right? :scared:
