    Reversing sensors for my car - best buy?

    I want to fit some reversing sensors on the rear bumper of my Vauxhall Astra - the sort that bleep when you get too close to something while reversing. I want the sort that come on automatically when you select reverse gear, not the ones with a separate switch.

    There are loads on eBay under £30 delivered but I am worried that they may be cr*p.

    Please can anyone recommend a decent set for under £30?

    I bought these off fleabay 290286023276
    I fitted them myself to my Kia Sedona people carrier with little effort.
    I've never had reversing sensors before and these are just superb.

    tesco sell them. Look on [url]www.offersoftheday.co.uk[/url]

    I had this kit fitted to my car by a garage...
    They painted the sensors the same colour as my car, and boy does it look good!

    They put the indicator flush up to the celling by the back window and most certinly looks like its always been there. When i select reverse the thingi beeps once and then the indicator telles me in feet how far away I am from something and also tells me which side is closest etc..

    I payed £100 inc fitting.
    I would defo recomend getting these professionaly installed.

    Id rather pay £100 and save myself a hefty damge bill if i were to smash my bumper up.
    Also the parking sensors look the part, each sensor was drilled into my bumper.

    I got one for Christmas with a 2.5 inch video display...was £45 I think

    Is there anything that will not just beep, but stop the car before I bump into something? :oops:
