Don't tell me, top is cutlery, second is wooden spoons, other utensils and large cutlery + freezer and sandwich bags because otherwise they're homeless. Laughing

I fitted this invisible parking sensor to both my MGTFs. It worked well & didn't make the cars look non standard. ie: no "bullet holes" in rear. That said on a more modern car the "bullet holes" would be the norm. Only problem: you have to remove the rear bumper to fit the sensor strip which runs right across the inside of the bumper.

Love the car but accurately assessing where all it's extremities are is more difficult than any car I've previously owned.

Perhaps I need sensors for: front, rear, side, & wheel to kerb!!!!!!!

Fortunately the GT Line has rear sensors as standard.

If that doesn't float your boat, then the stereo is easy to get to (for a switched live) with standard stereo blades, once the cober is removed (pulls off)



I also had a look at the back, and reckon you could fit all sensors in the black without taking the bumper off.
This is what i meant to post

Hi again,
I have just received a nice set of light blue sensors via ebay for Bex's Wind.
Hopefully will have a look at fitting them next week. There is no display with them, just the audible bleeper, as most of the time, you will be looking behind or in your mirrors when reversing. I have similar ones fitted on my TF and they work great.
So bumper off and drill out. Easy to fit too, as I will just be taking the feed from the reversing light.
Will post up a pic once done

Sundance,

Didn't realise you are a TF owner.

I've owned a 2004 115 & a 2003 160. What do you have?

Agree that an audible bleeper is all that is needed.

Hired a Jeep Cherokee in America & despite the rear view camera I relied on the "bleeps" when reversing.

I have a 2004 TF 160 in XPG owned it for a couple of years, before that I had a Solar red 135 which I bought from new in 2004.
I frequent both the T-bar and .org forums and a member of the Potteries and south Cheshire MG owners club.
I also put a rear view camera in my TF btw.

I was on the MG Rover .org web site for some time & when I came to sell the 160 I was offered a good price for it by an MG specialist (Church Square Autos in Shepperton) sight unseen partly based on my posts outlining my treatment of the car.

The 160 (Trophy Blue) was the most fun but the 115 was the better tourer as mine had Air Con & the 115 has higher overall gearing so fewer revs when cruising.

Part of the reason for parting with both is they were both hit from the rear by young ladies & they never felt the same again particularly the Yellow 115 as, even after 3 goes, the rear of the car never quite matched the rest of it especially under strip lighting in car parks.

I look back fondly on them both. A car much underrated by many but which took us many miles without missing a beat.

Enjoy yours.

Ok so I finally got around to fitting the sensors in Bex's Wind.
Thought it was going to be a pain getting the rear bumper off....oh yes it was, so awkward that I decided to try and fit them with the bumper in situ.
It was actually quite easy to do, and I was pleasantly surprised how effortlessly I could get the sensors in.
I put the control box in a conveniently placed space just to the side of the boot lock striker and the buzzer was routed around the boot and placed under the boot lip behind the passenger seat.
I used a cone cut to accurately cut the holes in the bumper....the plastic is extremely flexible and wired the control box into the reversing light, so when the reversing light comes on, the sensor control box powers up and does what its supposed to do.
Now all I have to do is locate some Azzurro blue touch up paint and get the sensors  more accurate shade of blue!

Azzuro blue?

I thought the Wind was Bleu Majorelle?

Allegedly named after French artist Jaques Majorelle who in 1924 constructed his largest art work, the Majorelle Garden in Marrakech, Morocco, and painted the garden walls, fountains, features and villa this very intense shade of blue, for which he trademarked the name Majorelle Blue.

Here endeth the Art Lesson!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well the colour was an issue, I googled the paint code and came up with both names for the paint code.
Maybe I will be buying Majorelle instead. I have a paintshop guy who can probably get some matched up for me, so may pop over and have a chat.
Thanks for the corrective info
