Will the real parking sensors please stand up...

Can anyone post a pic with the correct Honda Parking sensors (i have seen the other posts) for a Type R GT?

Also a picture of the interior gadget would be useful please.

I am unsure as to whether i have been sold aftermarket ones or Honda ones.

Regards
Anthony

Not on an R, but they are the same.

Interior gadget??
There is only a speaker...no display or anything...on the Honda ones.

Yes, i have definitely been sold non-honda ones.

There is a little display on the top right of the dashboard, with a "Heath Robinson" style fitting cable laying on the dashboard...

Now, the gadget is very useful and works very well. Also the visual indicator is excellent showing 4 level lines, 1 for each indicator.

There is no reason to think these are no good.. in fact I would not mind a display (I have original Honda ones), but if your dealer fitted these claiming they are originals AND charged Honda list price - you should have a word with them.

Ahh yes, I have no doubt what they have fitted is very good. Just annoyed you pay £XXX for something that really costs £X

Tut tut.

Will keep you posted on the response.
