Parking sensors
Started by: annefair (1134) Report abuse
Has anyone had parking sensors fitted on a car? Looking for recommendations/quotes.

have had them only as factory fitted option would not be without them also on one had the auto park but never used it other than to show the grandchildren

to be honest, parking sensors make the job harder, the bleeping disturbs your concentration, I hired a car once and it drove me mad, best move is get a smaller easier car to park,

yeah...factory fitted. can be helpful in tight parking space.

I had a jaguar x type a few years ago,and because of the long boot thought id get some fitted, got a price off Halfords i nearly collapsed.
So i bought a kit off online and fitted them myself,they only connect into the reversing light circuit, half the price.They really good had a small screen on the dash with the distance on,and a buzzer with adjustable volume or off ,and the screen which lit up at night.
I have a nissan note tenka now there fitted as standard,but the bleeper is in the back behind the R/H trim panel and couldnt hear it ,so i rewired it, its under the drivers seat now perfect.

While it's a motoring thread.... can I ask

Has anyone experience with Dacia ?

In particular we are thinking of a new Duster; probably with all mod cons

Parking sensors, weren't they called bumpers back in the day.

cordyline, a colleague of mine has one and we used to lift share. During the winter they get a lot of condensation on the inside windows and the blowers don't seem to clear it very well.

My mum has a Dacia. I've driven it a few times and it's a really nice drive.

there was a time "dacia"s had a very very bad name...a music hall joke in fact.../..but along came the Germans anD bought em out, theyre as good if not better than most cars in the same price bracket.I wouldnt hesitate in buying one.

Dacia is owned by Renault. They're French, not German.

Posted by: billy (26001)  Report abuse
