Default Front parking sensor question

Guys,

Was wondering if there is a way to make the front parking sensors angled lower? With my car being lowered my main concern is the parking curbs as opposed to hitting something straight ahead of me. I know this is a long shot but figured I'd throw it out there...

It's funny just the other day my wife was saying on her next car she wanted front sensors so they would pick up those concrete barriers (like the monster ones at our local Post Office). Her current car only has rear sensors. I told her that the front sensors wouldn't pick them up anyway.

I can't imagine how you could angle the existing sensors lower without it looking funny/bad. However, what about installing a second set, or replacement set, of sensors mounted under the license plate area?

I recommend adding a mini camera to the front bumper with 140 degree view or under your mirror and it allow you to view on your existing screen dvd/navi screen. Its a plug & play items.
