Reverse parking sensors yay or nay ?

Hi guys

Looking for a FK soon and wanted one with parking sensors ?

Are they necessary for FK shaped civic due to rear visibility or is it ok without ?

Also anyone know roughly how much it would cost to get some fitted to standard car ?

Can't say what it's like with them, but I've got no issues at the moment, there have been a few times where I've got a bit close reversing into a bay but so far no dings. I would say they would help in some occasions but most of the time it's fine.

I wouldn't be without them now. takes the guesswork out of reversing once you know how yours are calibrated.

Yes I have them and they have saved me a couple of times when there are small posts that you can't see

Would definitely recommend them.

My FK3 is the first car I have owned with them and they are definitely very useful. I am also surprised with how much they pick up.

Definatley would not have a car without Reversing Parking Sensors.
They just work.
I do also have a Reverse camera fitted, but in Wet rain or when it has steam on it it can be an issue,
Reverse sensors first then fitted cam

Thx, this will now open up my search field & I can budget for getting the sensors fitted. I guess honda will charge the earth to fit them for me ?
