Good evening all.
I took the plunge and added some rear parking sensors. The guides here were extremely helpful. The biggest problem I had was that once the car was up on the ramp nothing was as expected. I had thought that I would be able to just stick it on the ramp, find the markers on the inside of the bumper and then drill them. As soon as it was up on the ramp I found out that the inside of the bumper was totally inaccessible. I tried to take the rear bumper off, however the screw was stripped. Finally gave up, marked where the sensors would go (I hoped) on the outside of the bumper and drilled. After that all was fine.
They do make a big difference due to the limited rear visibility.
The car is in dire need of a wash!
