    Default Rear Parking Sensors

    Ok, nearly bought these from Maplin ( £29.99) , i have seen the " HOW 2 remove the bumper " also and looks fairly easy, one question though for those who have fitted them, how do you get the wire into the care and does the LCD display go to the front of the car or at the back so you view in the rear view mirror ?

    My car is Metro Blue 06 SRI, would black inserts for the sensors look out of place, or would i have to get some colour coded ones

    Thanks !!

    It is easy but probably be even easier with a friend to help hold the bumper.

    I have just painted some sensors for my girlfriends car. I used some fine paper to key the surface then did a few thin coats of colour.
