Default front parking sensor/camera

I have a question for everyone, as you know it we love our cars lowered, and the 2014 lexus IS is no exception, how do you keep from scrapping the front lower lip when pulling into a driveway or worse hit the parking concrete block as you pulled into a parking space, how many of you have installed front parking sensor or forward facing camera.

IMHO i would caution against parking backwards unless you have a front mounted dash cam to record the activity even when your engine is shut off.. a member recently backed parked and got their front grill smashed in.. other than that parking with your rear bumper out is less dangerous bc if you did get hit, most likely your bumper is the only damage.. whereas if you front parked, your grill, grill surroundiing, bumper, led DTR, and led headlights are all at the mercy of some dumb*****. thats a lot more stuff to repair.
