    Does anyone know if the VX aftermarket parkpilot allows for front and rear sensors?

    Just found the posts where i remembered reading about the front sensors, It was Leeds vectra & Dave Ukanalyst that were looking into it.. I think you'd be ok with the VX parkpilot kit if you can find somewhere to install the control box, once fitted it would be tech2'd onto the car and you could use the proper button for it.. the VX or OEM bosch sensors should clip straight into the factory fit brackets in the bumper so you've more or less got factory fit sensors....

    It can done done Roy front and rear but would take me ages to type. More to it than meets the eye though. To do the job as factory you would need new front and rear bumpers. You could do it with the aftermarket VX kit, not sure you would be happy with the sensor look though.

    ah, it's the bosch after market one that mentions the four front sensors, so still not sure if the VX supplied one will do both.. Does your kit have a single control box and any idea on part number or is it hidden away?

    Hi Paul, I have the factory front bumper with sensor holes (or will soon), and was planning on changing my rear bumper as I dont mind how the factory sensors look (certainly better then the aftermarket stuff). So any inof /part numbers would be greatly appreciated.

    I need to discuss this over the phone, way to in depth. I'll pm you my numbers. Want to make sure you get the parts right.
