    Hi All,

    Just Installed the "No holes" parking sensor from Parking Dynamics. write-up is attached.

    Took about 3 hours (and 2 cups of coffee!) but I was taking my time and taking photographs as I went along.

    Hope you find it useful.

    Regards,

    Phil

    Looks great, and well documented. I'd be interested in adding this to my 2004.

    From where did you purchase the sensor kit and for how much? How does the performance compare to the 'button' type sensors?

    I bought mine online from Amazon.co.uk for just under £80 ([ame="http://www.amazon.co.uk/Electromagnetic-Parking-Sensor-No-Holes/dp/B0023S5BK6/ref=sr_1_11?ie=UTF8&qid=1328446217&sr=8-11 ) so you may be able to get from the amazon US site. You can also buy direct from [ame=http://www.parkingdynamics.co.uk/]No Holes Parking Sensor | Parking Dynamics Reverse Sensor"]Electromagnetic Parking Sensor "No Holes" - Parking: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics[/ame]) so you may be able to get from amazon US. You can also buy direct from the manufacturer ([ame="http://www.parkingdynamics.co.uk/"]No Holes Parking Sensor | Parking Dynamics Reverse Sensor[/ame])

    The warning beeps start closer to the car than the button type but the main advantage is that the antenna extends round the side of the car giving better all round warning rather than just behind.
