    I have one the kits that are on ebay, like this one Parking Reversing 6 Sensors buzzer LED displayer system on eBay (end time 06-Mar-11 15:36:01 GMT)

    It's really good. I am awful at parking, so this was a godsend. It's worrying when you finally drill through the bumper for the first time, but now they are in its great. The wiring is pretty simple, splicing the wiring to the reversing light wire and the brake light wire.

    Easy enough DIY - bumper skin off - loads of masking tape on outside of bumper - small pilot hole (1.5mm) drilled from inside out at marked centres shown inside of bumper in 4 places - 20mm hole cutter drilled from outside - file a small notch at 12 o'clock in each hole - push sensors in - wire up - bumper back on - calibrate - done.

    as above its easier to remove the bumper, only go for 4 sensors as the holes are marked and the inner skin of the bumper is designed to take 4 sensors

    I fitted a set of ebay ones, I got the company to colour code them for me, I think they were about Ł45, fitted one evening and were great, no problems at all.

    I fitted a set of 4 sensors from an ebay company called London Colour (they also do HID kits). The parking kit was about Ł20 inc delivery and worked perfectly, my Dad has fitted a few of their kits too and never has had problems.

    They also supply a range of colours

    Well almost there, fitted the sensors today and trailed all wires into the boot area. Will wire it all in tomoz. Done it with the bumper on, not too difficult but beware of the bumper bar behind. Any one know how to get access to the rear lights and which wire is the reversing wire, I'm shattered and feel to lazy to search!!!

    Just inside the boot is a small plastic gromet, pop that off and there's a screw (Torx I think?) inside. Unscrew that DONT DROP IT and the light will hinge out from the rear and pop off. Be careful how you remove it till you see how it's fixed. I don't know about the reversing light wire, but you'll work it out from the PCB I expect.

    How did you mark the holes to know where to drill without removing the bumper?
