    Any advice on OEM looking parking sensors?

    I've been looking around at Park Pilot but have been advised

    a) its a pain to retro fit fully
    b) its expensive
    c) its no better than normal parking sensors

    but I do like the look of the proper parking sensors rather than the normal cheap kits

    Anyone know of any decent kits available?

    To be honest mate I think they're all much of a muchness in that respect, once the heads have been painted and fitted, you'd be hard pushed to tell them apart from the real deal. I've also been looking into fitting park pilot and went one step further in actually buying the PP module minus the loom and sensors so I have one here in the box, just need to find a loom plug for it and then get the sensors off ebay.
    The 20 quid kits do a great job to be honest, the only thing I find is that they all have **** looking interfaces that are meant to grace your dashboard some of those LCD fascias I wouldn't fit in a dogs kennel let alone a nearly new Astra

    Not sure about the kit parts, I know there are 2 or 3 parts to each sensor and then there's the loom to and from the ECU

    If you manage to find the relevant bits mate, I'll sell you the Park Pilot module for the 50 quid I paid for it

    I've got a kit myself which was intended for the zaf but not sure I can be bothered to fit it or not, even has silver sensors with it
