    Keep us posted. How easy or hard are they to fit? How much did the kit cost you? Is it easy enough to fit by yourself ?

    Just out of interest where does it tell you to put speaker for the box? Is there enough cable to fit it under the drivers seat? How loud is the tone can you hear it over any passengers who might be talking?

    Have been fitting parking sensors for some years now & I think I have become acustomed to or spoilt by the better brand (£100 region) When I come across the cheap ones you certainly get to see the quality of these kits. No dout they do the same job just with inferior components.
    Mind you for what they cost a: you can't go wrong & b: you can't complain if/when they do go wrong.

    It come with led readout one for each sensor. It has a small buzzer built into led readout unit seems quite loud when i tested it before starting to fit any parts.The wires for this part are quite short but easy enough to extend
