Parking Sensors

Available sensors for either the front or back.

These are unique, because unlike others, these are totally flush.

Included are four sensors, ecu, switch (front only), buzzer, wiring, mounting hardware and detailed instructions.

In-order to get a flush installation, usually the bumper has to be removed, however on the Elise/Exige, with no bumpers it is a relatively easy install because the clams are not removed.

Can be painted to match the cars color.

Can also indicate if another vehicle is getting too close.

These sensors are not cheap from China, but made by Cobra in Italy.

These are the same sensors car manufacturers install.

Introductory price $129.95. 17mm special drill bit $35 (refunded upon return).

Michael

How would one wire this system, i.e. if you put all 4 sensors on the rear?

I've got some "parking sensors" on my car, but they are much bigger and multi function if you catch my drift. I really wish these were dual function.

Not a bad price for the system! That is cheap insurance. Could you post a wiring diagram just to see how complicated install would be? What is the guarantee?

Wires from each of the 4 sensors are routed to the ECU in the trunk. From the trunk a single wire is routed into the cockpit through a trim grommet in the rear window, I can guide any one through this.

I was wondering about the availability of such a system.

Good news.


Michael,

What do you think about adding TPMS to Elise?

Thx.

I will take a set if you can install them in the rear grill and not have to drill into the bumper?

I have an "Orange" TPMS system on my car and it works well.

As always, thank you, Michael.

Are you going to LOG? I estimate that you've earned about 567 beers from us all.

No, I didn't even go to it when it was in Florida.

Will this one wire need to be spliced into an existing wire or is there a more OEM like spade connector; I hate cutting into the original wiring harness.
