    Default Rear parking sensor's

    I was looking at getting some rear parking sensor's fitted to my 06 signum.
    I was quoted 135 quid for the cheap stick on type or 550 quid for the real drilled in type. These price's are from VX. I understand that the drilled in type cost about 240 quid supplied not fitted. I think 300 quid is far to much for installation.
    Could anybody tell me if i can and how to fit the sensors. And what type are best.
    I am fitting these as the wife said she would find it hard to reverse me motor with the blacked out window's.
    So please help before it get's pranged.

    Just looked at these ratty they do look cheap but they look like most of the other one's. 25 quid is not to bad to lose if they are junk. I also like the looked at the stick under bumper type. 75 quid. I'm still not sure what to go for.

    £300
    Christ I'd be happy to fit them for half that if I could get away with it. Installation generally takes up to an an hour to fit rear sensors drilling four sensors into the bumper across the back but then there's the risk factor which is why we charge the liberty for doing it .
    The drilling's the easy part once you have the balls to do it. I take 5 minutes to measure up & mark then 2 minutes to drill the holes.

    Did you need to fit a relay as described here (taken from the Cisbo website.)

    Q. Would fitting a Parking Sensor Kit to the reversing light bulb circuit interfere with the blown bulb indicator on the dash?
    If you have a vehicle with bulb failure detection system then you will need to fit a Single By-Pass Relay, this protects the electrical system on vehicles with a bulb failure monitor or multiplexed wiring. Please see our links page for details on where to purchase a relay.
