    Parking sensors

    I have looked at the DIY section and read the guide,

    this one;
    4NT Cobra Parking Sensors Driveway Retro Fit

    I would like to know which cobra set to purchase and what size hole saw bit.

    is there another guide anywhere else?

    cheers.

    I went for the cobra 0258 as they are really thin sensors on the bumper face. I did look into the flush ones but the hole would have to be really accurate and clean which would not have been the case with the kit I fitted and at least it gave me a little play and covered any inaccuracies.
