    Owing to an oversight on my part my car does not have reverse sensors (assumption being the mother of all fudge ups I didn't check).
    Looked at all the options but thought start at the cheapest and work up.
    £10 (no you're not seeing things, a tenner) bought a stick on kit.
    Managed to get it in place without taking the bumper off.
    Not perfect but works ok
    £10 and an hour to fit - that's a bargain in my book

    That sure is a bargain.
    Do you trust them though?

    You have a link please? Still baffles me that they were not fitted as standard on my AvantGarde which is supposed to be the top spec!

    Rigged them up on a spare bumper in the workshop to fully test it out prior to putting it in the car.
    The range is low but it was picking up everything in the way so I'm happy enough.
