After market parking sensors Meta SR2

Anyone fitted these to your number plate surround. Do they work?
Sets on Ebay for 60 quid and look like they do the job.

Cheers

PS Next week she arrives.

I've been thinking about one of these systems.
The number plate on the Civic is quite high, so I'm not sure if they work as well as the lower sensor type.
I've contacted the manufacturers, they said to call a distributor! not very helpful!

Waste of money imho. they only pick up what is in range of the number plate area at the back of the car.

1) The Civic rear plate is high up so it'll miss some objects lower down

2) They do not cover the corners of the car, the lower edges that you WILL scuff.

3) They look cheap and nasty.

Was just thinking for £50 they would be better than nothing.
