I’m not that handy, unfortunately. Besides it will be a lease so ‘modifications’, not factory or dealer, are no-no’s I’m sure Thanks for all the info.Just do what I'm going to (for my rear bumper)... I ordered an aftermarket set of 4 sensors - with controller and audio alert. Cost around $15 and came with a drill bit for the bumper. I will install when the weather gets warmer, but I found the instructions for the factory accessory set on the forum or web (I forget), which give you all the info on how to access the bumper/panels removal and exactly how/where to splice the wires. The bumper even has molded marks (apparently) on where to drill the holes!
The only difference is that the sensors will not be body-color painted, but I ordered dark grey metallic ones that should go well with my Eternal Blue car (or you can get them painted). This is similar to what I got: https://smile.amazon.com/Frostory-Reverse-Parking-Detection-Distance/dp/B074LZTLBJ
Obviously you can do a similar install for the fronts, but you're on your own for instructions and wiring, then.
I will attached the install pdf here while I think of it...
So they were gonna modify the lease vehicle for you and charge you for the upgrades???
I’m just in shopping phase for a lease. I’m used to F/R parking sensors and am not thrilled with the crappy resolution/static nature of the back up camera. $pringing for the $ig isn’t likely to happen. The install idea was their sales attempt.
Yeah, me too. I'm not sure why some people are seeing bad resolution. Mine looks fine. I can't tell if it's that some just have bad cameras installed or they are more golden-eyed than me? Certainly there's no loss of quality between our 2014 and our 2019.Oh, if you read some of the other threads here, you'll see that you are not alone with your opinion of the camera. Personally, I'm fine with it.
