They should be silver if they are genuine Honda sensors. It looks as though they are 3rd party. The only thing you can do it paint them manually with some touch-up paint or something. I would't fancy trying that, though. I'm also sot sure if painting over the sensor could intefere in any way....

There are marks on the inside of the bumper to locate the sensors, not sure if it is a bumper off job or whether you can access it from the boot.

I guess that they were fitted on by the previous owner. They are not factory fitted. I bought mine from Ebay and the seller was selling them in different colours. I got them in silver. They look good.

Maybe yours can be removed and painted.
