1. A system, comprising:
a combination of a radar sensor and an external trim component, which are mountable on a motor vehicle so that the external trim component is penetrate-able by microwaves of the radar sensor, the external trim component including at least one layer on an outer surface of a base body of the external trim component, the outer surface facing away from the radar sensor, the at least one layer reflecting a portion of the microwaves;
wherein the external trim component includes an additional layer on an inner surface of the base body of the external trim component, the inner surface facing the radar sensor, and
wherein the additional layer is configured based on a thickness and a dielectric constant to reduce the reflecting of the portion of the microwaves.
