    I'm old school. I still do the whole neck turn, body twist, arm behind the passenger's headrest when I reverse. I need to see exactly what I'm reversing into first. Once I start the motion and know what I'm dealing with, then I'll use the backup camera and listen for the sensor beeps.

    I've had a few close calls with parking blocks up front too.

    Me too. I've even had young ones from work call me out on it.

    Same thing happened to me...now are you going to repair and repaint or replace the whole bumper?
    My car is 3 days old... and I don't want it to have difference in color.

    I got lucky. The bumper was just shifted off its mounting and the shop that has fixed my cars since 1989 reset it and replaced a few fasteners for free.

    The bumper has a very small fold line where it creased and that's all. So my Stinger has a barely visible battle scar until someone rear ends me.

    I hope you can have the same luck.

    Not really, unfortunately...
    My bumper got poked through, I'm probably gonna need a new one...
    Wonder how much it costs, since it has the back up sensors and all...
    My deductible is pretty high (2K), so let's see what happens...
    I'm glad yours was quickly solved!

    It took me more than a few cars with backup cameras to get used to using the camera without crashing into things. My initial experiences with the B.U.Cameras were worse than all those years without. It's a different part of my brain that I never used... Now - I don't think I could drive without one.
