A camera solution would be easier if you plan on doing it yourself.

Hi, Im bit weary myself on doing the sensors, bit im thinking is going to be tricky is getting the wiring from the sensors through the bumper into the boot. And im not keen on taking the bumper off!

Thinking of maybe giving the job to my auto electrician, as it'll be easier job for them raising the car onto ramps!!

Have you got camera installed ? May tackle that one myself ???

i've got both and I don't look at my sensors now I have the camera. (although that may be because my sensor on one side is very intermittent) As long as you check the calibration on the camera regularly as I find mine moves up and down when I wipe rain/moisture off of it and this can affect the angle and therefore the distance markers (if you have them), as can slamming the boot particularly viciously..

I have sat/nav so i just fit with it but if i were you i will go for parking sensors, If you want i can give you a good link to buy they are just 9 GBP . I installed about 5 of them and no trouble at all and very highly accurate. the oldest one now has 3 years fitted with no problems.
