    Is this equivalent to factory installed sensors (wiring etc?)

    That's a good price - if it's the Vx aftermarket (Bosch) kit. That's normally over £300 fitted!

    I had this fitted to my Signum (the Vx aftermarket one) and to cut a very long story short - it went all the way up to Vx Product (the people that design the cars) as it involved a bit of 'alteration' to the crash limiter (metal square section bar behind bumper) for the sensors to fit properly. Vx rewrote the fitting instructions after my car had them fitted - seriously!! I don't think a Signum had had this kit fitted until then!

    Would have thought this will be the system that mounts behind the number plate.
    I think it's made by meta and features 2 sensors, one either side of the plate!!

    It won't be the same as the factory option i.e. switch on dash, using the speaker in the roofliner (or steering column on newer models). The aftermarket Vx one is a self-contained box with the electronics and speaker which the sensors wire into.

    Yep, that's more likely what it's going to be.

    hehe - glad to see I'm not the only one needing some "rear supervision".

    £129 is a good price - I take it that it'll be a 4-sensor system?
