    I fitted mine to the rear. Didn't take bumper off, and wired to the reverse lights. No tech 2 needed at all and comes on only when in reverse. You can get the colour coded kits for around £15.00/ I got these ones http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/CAR-REVERSING-...item2c5021e795 and they've been fine. Had them on my previous cars too. Easy to fit, and the best mod you can do.

    nice one. If you can take the rear bumper off then the holes will be marked where the factory ones go. If you don't, then take your time measuring and double check. You don't want to drill a hole in the wrong place!

    Where did you get the measurements to do this? I was under the impression it was a bumper off job. Take it there is plenty room behind the bumper to get the fixings on and to find somewhere to run the cables into the boot. TBH this is a God Send because I wasn't feeling too confident about trying to remove the bumper without damaging it.
