I'm looking for a wireless or smart parking sensor that's easy to install. I'm not much for wiring anything...When I look online most options seem to be extremely complicated or expensive. Any help would be much appreciated. I'm buying a used car soon and need to know options soon so I can maybe have the dealership install it for me.

Are you looking for:
1) Front and back or just back
2) Audio alert - beeping/sound type or camera
3) Why do you need a wireless arrangement

These guys do loads of options, URL is a giveaway!

You can email them - the guy to deal with is Gareth. They have loads of options. I've just rung him and they regularily post to the US.

I bought this one, rear only, wired, audio alert and installed it in my Gen1 R53 Cooper S.

The speaker unit is in my boot (trunk) behind a side panel. So no messy wires to the front and removal of trim (which never goes back right). It has a volume control in the unit but I didn't touch that and I can hear it fine from the drivers seat.

About $70 but that is with VAT which they shouldn't charge you, so $55. Postage should be about $25 max. You guys have to pay fortunes to post to the UK. The USPS are bandits and robbers. From here to the US is way more reasonable.

Thank you Nigel,

This is informative and nice to hear it's working perfectly for you. I will include this on my shortlist.

I also have another choice which is Fensens from website called fensens.com Rear sensors are fine for me. I have to read more reviews before I decide.
