Hi I am debating on adding a bull bar or grille guard to my pilot touring. My question is this going to screw with my front parking sensors and front license plate? Any opinions and thoughts?
This is one that I was looking at as a possibility.

If you have sensors, adding a grille guard can interfere.

Thanks that's what I was afraid of. I didn't want to buy it and then just have them beep all the time lol.
It be a long and annoying shrill. It'd look cool though. You could always buy an LX or EX-L. 🤔

It will not interfere. Mine works perfectly fine with the OEM bumper trim and it looks like mine is bigger than yours...lol.. Honda Designed the Pilot to have the sensors work without this trim interfering with its performance. Also, page 365 in the manual shows an image of the area the front sensors cover and it appears to me that the bull bar will not interfere with the parking sensors.

I'm confused, where on the vehicle is the grill guard that looks like this? Not seeing it.

That is the grill guard the OP is wanting to install.

I know a trailer hitch or basket installed near a rear sensor will be detected. If that metal grille guard is near a sensor on the front, I dont see how it be any different.
