The sensors look alright; just like the factory insalled type you find in other cars. The display is awful though. You would really put that ugly thing in your pretty car? Good price if you really want/need them.

I like those a lot. I wish that the car would have come with them stock. However, I am not liking the display that comes with that kit at all. I think it looks kind of goofy. Maybe if you just didnt mount the display where it was visible and only listened for the beeps?

I think that if I went with any kind of back up technology it would be the rear view camera that you can hook up to the AVelectronic.com DVD/TV Tuner.

I guess my comment might not be applicable where everyone here lives, but I would think the only real use you'd get out of back up sensors is pulling in/out of parallel parking situations and the occasional tight squeeze. I don't know about everyone else, but I think I've only parallel parked my G once in nearly 7k. So for me they are not really necessary - I also think the view out the rear isn't too bad to judge distance. But just my take.

I think it would be a cool gaget to add if it looked "factory" but I don't really like the look of that aftermarket product.

Well, I backed into a cement block that was about 2' tall at a gas station. It was about 4 feet from the side of the gas pump. I had no idea it was there. I just want to avoid hitting anything like that.

these sensors are garbage... the visual display is a hazzard since you have to take your eyes off of DRIVING to check it. the only good way to do it is via a good audio tone mechanism, which also won't make your beautiful G35 look like crap on the inside. You also have to drill your bumpers, drill your rear chassis, run wires every-freaking-ware. Not for me.

I researched every possible aftermarket parking sensor out there and the best one I could find is: ReverseGuard. http://www.americanroadproducts.com/
Ask for Allan or Bill, 714-969-8907 1910 E. Warner, Suite A, Santa Ana, CA corner of Redhill and warner behind Porter Creative Group

This product has the sensors embedded in a custom license plate frame, no bumper drilling, or unsightly gauges, has great rear coverage and a national safety board approved tone alert that changes as you get closer to an object. it covers the entire back end including 45 degree angles from each taillight. you will be impressed.! the price is a bit high, $250, but well worth it.

Check out a new site www.gdpsensor.com. You can buy a back up sensor online for under $80.00. They have them in recessed or stick on type. I got a two sensor recessed device and had it installed for $40. It looks great and works real nice. There is no display, just a beeper that you hear inside the car. It starts beeping slowly at 1.4 meters from and obejct. The beeps increases in intensity until you get close to an object.

Pretty cheap, but I would never want those little wires hanging down the back of my bumper.

good point. I got the recessed sensor and drilled a hole in the bumper. It is a bit of a job but it looks great when its done. there are no wires with the recessed type

I would get this if the plate came in silver/metal or chrome finish.
Black plastic frame looks really nasty.
Did anyone purchase this product, and if so please POST a pic of it. I want to see how bad it looks on our beautiful G35.
thanks

good luck... make sure they have good ratings, here at my job we installed a back up sensor in a car and they did not work at all, they kept beeping for no reason and than sometimes they wouldnt beep at all.. make sure they work first before drilling holes.. ie: take a peiace of card board that is just as long as your bumper, put the sensors in the card board and have someone hold it as you walk in front of it.. :) I would hate to see you drill holes in your bumper if the product dosnt work.

The above product I don't think requires drilling holes in the bumper since will use exisitng license plate frame holes.

Hope that phone number and reverse guard advertisement is not labeled on every bracket.

haha~ good one [:D]
Yeah,I hope not.
Worst case would be to spray paint the frame to have chrome finish[grad]

Agreed!!!! Unless you really can't see well, I wouldn't bother. I can see fine in mine.
