    why do you need a picture?
    find the centre of the bumper, measure equal distances either side and drill the holes.
    most sets come with fitting instructions.
    if you are bothered about them looking odd or out of place then as Shadfall said, learn to reverse.
    you'll only end up trusting them too much and one day hitting somehing they dont pick up.

    Orgional sensors are designed to go where they go. Aftermarket ones have their own parameters on where they should be fitted which may not be the same as factory.

    It is very rare that aftermarket ones go in the same place tbh

    can't you just follow the fitting instructions? we fit sensors at work and we have to measure a certain distance from the ground. it should say in the instructions. and btw don't go for cheap and nasty sensors, you'll regret it, they just beep whenever they feel like it.
