    Default Parking sensors fitted

    Just to confirm that the gadgetman parking sensor kit off ebay is an exact paint match for flame red.

    Now just have to pluck up the courage to test them to the max with out nudging anything

    Just find a parking cone and check the tones/distances in front of each sensor. You can do that from the outside with the ignition on, car in reverse, but engine off.
    Then stick a broomhandle or similar in the cone so you can see it from inside the car and practice getting close to it and how the distance appears from the driver's seat.

    reversing into my drive seems ok. My house comes to a wedge/point/corner in the middle of my drive. i was a bit sceptical of this but the sensors pick it up and indicate me to stop about a foot short.

    reversing in front of another car scares me though. I would normally stop before the kit even starts to bleep.
