    recommend good parking sensors?

    right, i'm after two set of decent parking sensors (one for the siggy, one for the veccy) i've looked over ebay, but not really sure whats good and whats not. can anybody point me in the right direction

    ps, i dont want a new interior mirror with it, just a beep will do

    Have a look at these:

    I have not used them myself but my Dad has had a four sensor kit on his Berlingo van for almost three years now and has had no problems at all so they seem fairly reliable.
    We usually fit the Laserline kits at work and have not had any problems with them either but they are quite a bit more expensive.

    I have them on my Signum.

    Fitted them the day after I bought it.


    Not painted (couldn't see the point)

    Got them off eBay for £14
    Same as THESE

    Can't fault them, it helps there's 4 marks in the back of the Vectra and 2 marks in the Signum bumper (you have to mark the outer two) for there location.

    I'd recomend Steelmate park sensors

    They are very reliable and the sensors look alright too

    Just take a chance on some tidy looking ebay cheapos. I've fitted several different sets and they all work better than the sensors fitted to my brothers old BMW as standard.
