Default Professional DIY: Parking Sensor Install on 2015 Lexus IS350 F-Sport

my fiancÚ and I recently purchases a 2015 Lexus IS350 F-Sport. She wanted front and rear parking sensor, but it wasn't a factory option. I used to be a Car Audio Installer for 13+ years before becoming a Paint Protection Film Installer.

I hated how must parking sensor stick out and didn't look factory at all....

I order the factory 212 paint from touchupdirect.com, and went on looking for front and rear sensors..

I went back to the lexus dealership found a non-f-sport and made a template of the location of the factory sensors.

I found some flush mount sensors by Rydeen...

The kit allows output to a video screen, showing distance and flashes left or right

I ordered two other kits for the front, but that will be done later....there is two areas in the grill where it looks like it was made for parking sensors...(that will be in another post)


I had to find the factory wires for the factory camera and wired in the "brain" of the parking sensor. Went and painted the sensors with the paint I orderd

layed the template of the location of the factory sensor, and drilled the holes out of the bumper and removed the rear bumper, because the sensor installs from the back of the bumper

After I was done with that, I installed the rear sensors

and here how it outputs to the factory screen......it's not like the factory but, I rather have the distance showing how far I am versus flashing colors.......

Didn't have time to finish the install of the front sensor or the ESCORT 9500ci...they'll probably done next weekend!
