I've tried those Parking Dynamics ones (before I fitted the conventional), but they're no good imo, partly to do with our civic having too much metal surrounding the place of install apparently, which is a shame because its a nice idea.

@Hyweltomas

If want to colour match you could always colour code them yourself. Halfords can custom mix any colour in shop if they don't already have it on-shelf just tell them the code. Out of experience they're paints are pretty good and a good colour match also perfect for small jobs.

Or, get the little bottle of touch-up paint from Honda - goes a long way …

Yeah I bought them and fitted them myself (with help from a mate!). Easy enough to drill into the bumper.. took a while to wire because I struggled to get rear interior panel off to get to the wire!

Work perfectly and perfect colour match!
