Rear Sensors: Standard on the GT Line; are a must on the Wind.

Having driven my wife's new Jazz which also has sensors on the front I am tempted to have some on the Wind!!

“Rear Sensors: Standard on the GT Line” ? Thought they were an option, as not got them on mine and have pretty much everything else on it.
Have toyed with idea of fitting them but having experienced a rear camera setup on other cars would prefer that. Anyone done that?

Yep, rear sensors were always an optional extra, not standard on any model.

Mine were after market ones. Wireless that work great but occasionally pick up something that isn't there. Possibly down to the tarmac surface. I think you could get a version  that had a camera.

Hi guys....have been quoted £188 to have reversing sensors fitted (incl £20 extra for colour matching), by a firm in Sittingbourne, Kent. They look like a professional outfit and will come and fit them at my home. Is this a good price, or should I shop around?....I dont fancy doing it myself, and have seen Youtube videos where the rear bumper has to be removed.....yikes !!!😣

Thanks Sweeney, sounds like my quote to supply and fit isn't too bad....think I'll go for it...especially after a near miss with a concrete bollard in the dark the other night !!!!!! 😣

Reversing sensors fitted 👍....not sure how I managed without them !! Never really noticed a problem in the summer, but reversing in the dark on a rainy winters night was a nightmare....and parallel parking mean't having the powers of Yoda....not any more !! 😂
