dealers edge on marine drive by oak bridge does them, I believe alot of dealerships contract off to them to do their back up sensors. Not sure how much it costs though.

You should try the Electromagnetic Parking Sensor, it mounts on the inner side of your bumper, tap the wire to the reverse lights and done.

My brother bought them on amazon, theyre wrx/sti specific so they fit in one of the rear license plate LED slots. They use a sony camera and are only $25, its looks just as good as the backup camera on my dads lexus gs 350 f sport.

^I think op is talking about the sensors that indicate distance; sounds like you just installed a back-up camera. Having both is great though, this is the set-up we have on our GS; we primarily use the back-up camera for backing into spots and the front sensors for parking in our garage!

Whatever happened to just learning the dimensions of your car and parking skills?

agreed. back up sensors make sense on suv's and pickups. on a car? kinda pointless IMO.

that being said, i fucking love the back up sensors on my truck. i dont know how anyone could even purchase a new pickup without them..

^ So if someone owns a 760LI which is probably just as long as an F150 SCrew, 5.5' box, it's pointless?

I think the opposite is true. Truck/van/SUV, the window/tailgate is 5-6" from the back of the bumper. On most cars, one can't see the back of the deck lid, so there's more guessing involved.

Having said that, a little practice and awareness negates the need for any warning device/camera.

I think in this case, a camera or sensors is a great idea, simply for the safety of passers-by.

But these sensors are being included on the smallest fuckin cars these days, making for lazy-ass drivers. And the amount of times I've seen aftermarket kits installed on a Camry in Richmond...like, come on.

IMHO, cameras, sensors, and GPS are training drivers to be lazy and distracted. Pay fucking attention, and learn your fucking vehicle.
