Reverse Sensors

Any one installed their own reverse sensors yet?

I am thinking about getting this set from Cobra off of ebay:

I have rear ones but would love something up front for the nose. I had a Saab loaner that had them and they were great. Not sure how i would integrate them though???

We call these "women's parking aid". Sure you want those?

OK, on the Evora you DO want them in the rear.

You could get a front and rear sensor kit or just add a separate front sensor kit. It will come with the control unit and small speaker for the beeping

In the greater metropolitan NY area, everyone has reverse sensors.

They're called "bumpers".

I'm eyeballing this "Curb Alert Curb Sensor". Anyone have any experience with it? Seems easy enough to install. I'm a bad judge of nose position so need to have something up there.

So is the scraping sound different than the curb alert?
