    Default Dolphine Rear Parking Sensors.. Any Good?

    Thinking about fitting a set of the Dolphin rear parking sensors to the wifes car, which cost around £49.99 + 4.99 postage

    http://www.parkingsensors.co.uk/dolp...s_sea_blue.asp

    Has anyone tried these,??? are they any good????

    I did fit a cheap Cisbo set of sensors off Ebay to my old Vectra which only cost around £17 +pp, and they were not too bad for the price.

    Just wondered if it was worth paying the extra for these Dolphin one's.
    ie better quality maybe? or am I wasting a few extra quid for the Dolphin sensors kit. I suspect they maybe more or less the same...lol

    Fitted a set of the dolphin sensors (rear kit) to my wife's Mazda 5. Colour match was really good - easy to install and follow instructions. Came with a handy sharp hole saw too.

    Well recommended and have been 100% reliable. My only slight gripe is the buzzer - its a bit annoying compared to other makes.

    HTH, Matt

    Thats what I was wondering of course.

    My cheapo ones worked reasonably well, though it would false beep just occasionally in heavy rain, but I was never 100% sure if that was down to the guy who fitted them.. IOW Me!
    I colour matched to the car, so its possible I gave it too many coats of spray paint, though TBH they did function okay 99.99999% of the time.

    Thanks for the reply matey, so no issues in Heavy rain at all then ?

    I assume you mean the buzzer is too loud or something.?

    The buzzer on my last set was a bit too loud for me, so I just placed some tape across part of the front opening to reduce the noise a little.

    No problems whatsover in rain or frost - the paint finish is wearing well too.

    With the buzzer - yes it is loud and I 'hid' the offending item under the sound insulation to muffle the noise slightly. But what i meant was it sounds cheap - if that makes sense? I am used to the low frequency beep that you get through the speakers on factory fit modules.

    Couldn't comment on the savings or benefit of the cheaper kits - but for paint finish, ease of fitment and support that the supplier offers - the Dolphin products in my opinion are well worth the difference.
