    Default Parking kit reverse sensors

    Can anyone suggest a good reverse sensor parking kit for an 07 Vectra which will also have a distance indicator?

    Many Thanks

    its dead easy to fix there are marks in the bumper so you know where to drill, feed the wires through a rear light then joined an earth and live to the rear lights loom via scotch locks and then connect to the main box of the sensors and tidy the wiring up and your done took me about an hour and half to do and that included taking the bumper off

    quality is excellent and ive had them on about 3 months and they work a treat

    Sorry for butting in here, thinking about adding this kit myself, does it not need a relay to retain the bulb sensing circuit (blown bulb) or is it simply not worth bothering with the relay IYO, and wire it direct to the reversing light feed wire as you suggest.
    Also a quick thought... do you think a fixed swanneck towbar would pose any problems with the sensors, on looking at the how-to's on this subject the sensors look to be sufficiently away from the centre area so as not to be a issue, would you agree?

    although I did the sunglasses holder mod in 20secs flat, & only £10.60 from the stealers, cheaper than ebay! I do fancy the parking sensor mod, dont like the idea of drilling my bumper!
