    Question Electromagnetic parking sensors

    Has anyone fitted Electromagnetic parking sensors to there motors?
    Am needing to fit reverse sensors to my motor as the wife has already hit the wall!!!!! Not happy.....
    I cant really be arsed drilling holes and trying to get the sensors colour coded, as they will defo never match the shading.
    I know this is relatively new technology, i have fitted a set to a citroen c3 and they worked ok, just not sure how well they will work on this motor.
    There are a few sets for sale on ebay, here is the link http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Electromagneti...3A1|240%3A1318

    Again many thanks in advance for any information on this.
    Cheers
    Dave.

    DONT DO IT!!!!!

    I tried a set on my signu, and they DONT WORK!!! They only pick up things that reflect magnetic waves, IE METAL! They are useless against wood or brick etc!

    Just bite the bullet and drill...

    The number plate sensors look no too bad, am thinking that if they really dont work will prob just bite the bullet snd drill the bumper.
    Better check ebay for a spare bumper first. LOL

    I would say park sensors for 100% and also before installing them to paint them to car color

    The license sensors....in time are not so accurate and for corners...they do not exist
