Thinking about getting parking sensors for my xantia estate. Are they hard to fit.? Which ones are the best ?

Why? The estates are the easiest to park.

I agree with Xac, but no, they're not hard to fit a simple set. Holes in bumper, bit of wiring to the reversing lights to activate them, tidy it up, job done. Did it on my Mondeo years ago because I simply couldn't park it at all.

This is a dead easy job, I got a set off Fleabay for £10 even came with the correct sized hole drill. Took about an hour to fit and don't look like an add on at all.

Some more info here, http://www.frenchcarforum.co.uk/forum/v ... 08#p306408" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Wouldn’t want to be without them now.
