Reversing cameras and parking sensors

Parking is never the easiest of tasks, and bumps and scratches never look good – even on an old car.

What is it? Sensors and camera attached to the rear of the car that provide feedback when parking.

Why? Parking is never the easiest of tasks, and bumps and scratches never look good – even on an old car.

How? Fitting sensors could mean cutting holes in the bodywork, or brackets or adhesives. Most cameras and sensors will need power cables running to 12V sockets, too.

Should I do it? Whether or not you should buy it depends on how confident you are in your parking ability.

Price? Camera kits start from around £64.99, with model-specific or universal set-ups available. Check with your manufacturer or dealer for what’s best.
