From the Territory accessory website:
Sensors are colour matched to your vehicle for a clean, integrated look Feature standard on Ghia. Factory fit sensors' appearance and audio function differ from Genuine Ford Accessory Reverse Sensing System.
You know Burnsi
I never thought I'd get reverse sensors, But ever since I Mushed Up Fluffy on the driveway It gave me phobias about Mushing Up one of the Anklebiters so off I went to check out the market and for about $250 you can get a Quality aftermarket reverse sensing system,and most systems had"
( Sensors are colour matched to your vehicle for a clean, integrated look )"
and for about $500.00 i could get a reverse camera and 5 " screen as well
BUT I liked the Cupped Ford genuine ones that I saw on the dealership floor. Mind you I also saw them on a Falcon and just for interest sake on a Holden Monaro at the shops.
My powers of deduction led me to believe if I parted with $500.00 at Ford I would at least get the genuine Ford Article that I saw all over the Dealers Yard.
My Argument Was Somebody should Have Told Me they were going to be different. They did not tell me Anything about it.
After I pointed it out they said I should Have Had them factory Fitted ,
I did not need them at the time Plus I Believe they would Have fitted these type anyway. (On The TX)
As far as the bumper being different I DONT THINK SO,the same argument the Ford Pleb put to me ,the difference is the holes. I was Willing to lend them my drill. its was even marked were to drill.
The real reason I found out recently is because the wiring on the TX is different then Ghia or Ts because of the sound system.
Not only That, I could have had the cupped system if I paid about $1000.00 BUT I DID NOT GET THAT OPTION.
Just a thought
I dont have the flood lights -
IT could Have been factory fitted
I can order it and i can get it dealer fitted (genuine accessory)
What will they fit?????
Anyway I ll let you know what Department of Fair trading Thinks
