Installed my Dolphin Micro Parking sensors yesterday.

Decided to run a flying lead for the power supply so i if i have any problems i don't have to get in behind the door card again to access the wiring, i just need to remove the boot covers.

Install took about 4 hours.

Sensors seem to work really well so far, mounted the buzzer in behind the top mount cover for the rear shock and it is not to loud when reversing, but can still be heard with music playing.

Overall, very happy with the sensors, well worth the money.

Good stuff mate.

These were on my CTS when i bought it.

They were grey right enough but got them painted when i colour-coded the bodykit.

Couldnt live without them now.

Kinda dodgy when parking my wife`s car though and waiting for the beep beep.

Did you need to drill new holes or do they fit into the ones that are mounded into the bumper as standard?

I didnt have any sensors so i had to drill holes in the bumper to fit these.
The sensor kit comes with the correct size hole saw and if you remove the rear bumper it is marked on the inside where the sensors go making easy to drill the holes.

The standard black ones are a great match for the NHB so i didn't need to paint them luckily.

I very weary when im reversing the car as i cant see anything behind me so just decided to get a set and these seem to be really good.

They are slightly smaller than the standard dolphin ones but they look almost flush once fitted and you just turn them when fitting to get the correct angle rather than using wedges as they are shaped to suit.

Just hoping i don't hit anything now.

I already have the grommits from a previous install. I'm going to guess they were from a standard sized sensor kit and thus should avoid the micros. I guess theres no way to tell untill install.
