Parking Sensors

Do you get a display with LEDs or is it just a noise when you get the official Honda ones?

I have seens pic of the official ones on the CTR and they don't look too bad and since the rear view is poor and lots of people are getting them I thought I should too. But just interested in how these ones work.

Had mine fitted yesterday.
No LED just sound but very accurate. Make sure if you do order them that they are getting you the Honda colour coded ones, I have read a few posts on here where some people have had other makes fitted by the Dealer.

That's what my sensors look like. I was not very impressed with the fit - they bulge out around the edges as if they have been secured too tightly in the centre.

Do other people's sensors look like the picture above, or do they sit tight and flat against the car (as I would expect)?

Mine are the same on my NHB. Look so much better than those cheapo 'button' type that you see on lesser quality cars.

Not quite sure what you mean by "my sensors look like that"
My sensors do not bulge out around the edges they are flush with the body work and I am very pleased with the result! perhaps the photo doesn't do them justice, but I can assure you they are very well fitted flush and official Honda ones.
Sorry they don't meet with your approval

ps would be interesting to see a photo of yours

Can anyone advise on retro fit sensors? What do Honda charge? Are the holes/wiring already in place? Aftermarket units? Instructions/help anyone? It' difficult to picture for me - 'cause I've just bought the model in the showroom - an ES model which I pick up on Wednesday- and it is not fitted with sensors - and I know nothing about the car yet!

Looking forward to it though. The only thing I didn't like about the car was the rear window - I dont like the view through it and can imagine it's not easy to reverse/park.

Appreciate any advice.

Hey civicpete,

The Honda ones that are fit by the dealer are about 390 (depending how much discount they wil give you off that). My dealer told me that they drill the holes for them themselves. Aftermarket ones are definitely cheaper and from readin ghere it seems you can get a pretty good match on the colour too.

It seems you can buy the sensors etc for uner 50 on ebay. You'll probablyahve to pay somebody abotu 100-150 to fit them. For the small cost of double the price you' get the peace of mind that a trained monkey third party wont be fitting them (instead a honda trained monkey will! )

I was going to buy some of e-bay but can't find a colour to match my Blueishsilver, do you think I would be able to mount the sensors in the black section of the rear bumper just above the honeycomb section?

Thanks Guys. It has probably been asked before - but I'll risk asking ''has anybody tried the Taurus D123 and is it any good?''

I've been considering the Taurus system and would also be interested in anyone's experience with it.

Can't remember the prices but Halfords used to do retro fitting of sensors, coloured also if required, and their rates were quite good.

The only negative thing about these is that I was told they are affected by the rain, i.e. if the bumper is wet they beep anyway.
However, having been quoted 455 from my local dealer for fitted ones (they will not fit non-Honda sensors as they have had previous problems) and 269 for just the sensors, I think I might give the Taurus ones a go for 72.

I thought that the Halfords sensors were only around 120 coloured and fitted.
