Parking Sensors

is it possible to have parking sensors installed into a 53 plate 1.2 Active? and is this something fiat charge a fortune for? would be most useful as parking is a nightmare around my gaff - epecially when I come home from shifts in the middle of the night.

Anyone got any idea of cost if it is possible?

Ta

Darren

Hmmm...... 99 sounds like a bit of a bargain to me. It's worth workin a couple of Saturday mornings to get the money together and have a proper job done.

Reckon I might invest.

if you get stuck, let me now

(get the bumper strip off first to line up the holes you drill, to the ones in the bumper already)
