    Default Parking Sensors Couple of questions

    I'm looking to fit some in the not to distant future to the Sig, now the question is do I fit front and rears or just rears, the kits I have seen for both have them LCD displays, now I'm not too keen on the look of them as it will have to sit on the dash, or be fashioned in somewhere. I would rather just have a buzzer.

    Do I then get two rear sets and fit one at the front using the buzzer for the front at the front and the rear at the rear, granted I will have to run a cable to the brake light but that all seems pretty logical.

    Or do I not bother with fronts at all, whats the general consensus.

    Thanks

    I just got rear ones and I have to admit I've never thought to myself that I wished I had fronts too. I just find the rears handy because you can't really see the end of the boot on the Vec. I also have a towbar as backup.

    I've got rear fitted with beeper at rear, beeper located in the open space where the light unit is. Sound is good, not too loud & not too quiet. Am going to fit another set to the front and have beeper at the front. Will try to locate the brake light feed and do everything at the front rather than run cables through car. Alternatively fit a timer relay activated by the reverse circuit at the front also. Again going to just stick with the beeper.

    Mines a 56plate Siggy and there's a metal box section right where the bumper sits, right where you want the detectors to sit. Drilled through mine, only the two middle units needed to be drilled through. Unless your detectors are very shallow
