    also if they did does anyone know if the wiring lomb is in the car already?

    They were an option, and I have seen them fitted, but they are rare. I got a set fitted to mine. I bought the kit from this place for £48, including shipping, and a local audio installer put them in for about £75 labour.

    They work fine. The in-car display unit sits just above the rear-view mirror, attached to that funny little middle-visor.

    I got the four sensor set, with the silver display. In a perfect world, the sensors would have been fitted about half way up the body-coloured section of the bumper, which is the rear-most point, but that would have required the removal of the bumper, which would have cost a lot more in labour, plus the sensors would have to have been painted. Instead, I had them fitted into the black plastic lower trim section of the bumper. They blend in perfectly, and are only about two inches "inside" the rearmost point of the car.

    How did you get on with ordering & fitting your reversing sensors?
