Anyone contemplating ordering a Rocco would be advised to add rear parking sensors to their wish list, Im glad I did.

Hi Mate,I reckon this had got to be one of the easiest cars I've ever reversed, just set the L/H mirror low, look for the wheel arch , and there you go, my wife has TT and it's hell to reverse...

Cheers

I bet they are easy to use, but having seen a car with them fitted, decided they were not for me. I will have lots of cash to spend on touch up paint for the rear bumper!

Wow I did not realise it showed an image on the screen, my rocco should be arriving in a couple of weeks :)
Yes the yellow line shows an object getting closer (my garage), when you get to less than 30cm you hear a fixed tone rather than a beep and the line turns red.

The line isn't always the width of the car, sometimes you may only see the left corner covered i.e. a lamppost when parallel parking.

Hey Veeedubba! I was thinking more of an occasional scuff mark. Not entering a demolition derby or anything. She is due to be delivered to the dealership on Dec 17th, so not long to wait. Happy with yours?

Thanks for posting the excellent picture of the screen - you have convinced me that it is worthwhile adding it to my extras list!
No probs, I should add FYI people think retro fitting parking sensors is the same thing, however I have read on other forums that people that retro fitted them only get the beeping sound no display is shown and believe me the display comes in great use.

You have to wonder why there aren't 2 different prices for PDC. Factory fitted with the jazzy display on the screen should cost more than a dealership fit that doesn't work on the screen?
OR
Should the dealerships be doing a more thorough job, but they don't know what to do?
