    looks interesting, the seller has very good feedback and sez that its very easy to install and if it wasn't think his feedback would be worse.worst bit will probably be cuttin the bumper, holesaw probably your best bet.best of luck let us know how you get on.

    Looks like an interesting gadget....the only thing is that the mirror on the box seems quite different from the one in the other pic

    Just remember you may get a problem with the "bulb out" system in which case you need to fit a relay in the supply to the parking sensors.

    I was looking at those but the mirror part looks quite bulky on the ones i saw. I'm looking at the 6 sensor systems with the display but there are so many to choose from. I might wait to see what you think of yours before i buy one.

    Right, complete annd working perfectly. It was number 5 slot on the cluster.
    This is a great unit, better ontherear view mirror as thats where you look naturally. Ive tested it reversing straight and at both angles (left side and right side sensor)
    Believe me if I canfit it in less than 2 hours anyone can...no joke.

    Pics soon
