    I bought a set off ebay for about £15. I love them, they work great.
    I thought they would be terrible for that price but they work bang on, they look OEM straight out the box.
    Just splice the power wire into the reverse light wires, run the sensor wires inside the car from underneath, hide the sounder and box in the boot and your set.
    No point spending more as I dont have an RNSE.

    I know a lot of people will turn their nose up at them but to be honest, they do exactlly the same job ones 20 times the price.

    if you want the oem sensors they can be fitted, i have done on mine and a few other cars but i will warn you they are not cheap! the best i have previously bought the individual sensors for £10 each from a scrappie but they are like £75 each from the dealers

    I had the same one on my old car and they are great for its price,however the sounder looks cheap if you place them on on top of the dash.

    You need to put it in the spare wheel well or hide it somwhere.

    the buzzer should sit on the drivers side behind the rear seat belt, behind the boot trim
