Someone to install Park Assist System

Hi all,

Does anyone know of any garages or service centers where we can have a park assist/distance sensor kit installed on a 2007 Toyota Auris?

Any input appreciated!

Thanks!

Re: Someone to install Park Assist System

Maybe it's best to go along to your local Toyota dealer and ask how much it would cost. The car should be prepped to accept the system as I guess this is an option at new? In that case, it should be possible to fit the sensors and enable the system but I have a feeling it could be quite a financially bruising experience!

Re: Someone to install Park Assist System

Surely such a system would be an affront to the very-swiss sense of 'fair play' when it comes to parking?

ie - if you can't park in that space, tough luck; don't cheat by using a computer...

Wouldn't it be easier to import an unemployed Greek and teach them to say "back a bit, left, OK, slowly etc." at the appropriate moment?

Sound idea but make sure you take care of paying his taxes.

Re: Someone to install Park Assist System

Thanks for the input guys.

We will go to Toyota off course but was hoping to get more than one quote.

We are looking for the beeping one that tells you distance, our parking space in the basement is a bit awkward and thought it would def help to keep us from knocking into the walls when getting in and out.

Re: Someone to install Park Assist System

Ahah, read that bit a more...

Distance sensors: Relatively cheap but if you want them integrated, Toyota is the only place.

Parking assist: The whole twirly steering wheel thingy is highly unlikely to be an aftermarket fit. And it'll *definitely* be a Toyota-only job in the unlikely event is is available.

You may well find that the Australian version is easier to fit and use - like this guy has (behind him):

put some padding on the wall and just stop when you bump into it...

Good idea, only problem is that the area behind our parking is where they store the salt machine, lawnmower etc, so no wall to put padding on.
