Hi all,

I need to replace the RH front parking sensor in my car, and have been quoted £600+ by Maranello. Any views on what that might cost if I went to an independent specialist?

Thanks in advance

If it’s like a QP - the whole bumper has to come off - but this is not a main dealer job. Paying those hourly rates for a relatively simple job like this doesn’t make sense to me

Completely agree - and I’ve declined Maranello’s kind offer to do it for £630+!

I’m hoping an independent will be under £300 given the difference in hourly rates, etc...

I am having my bumper off and the pushed in sensors re-sat and a replacement front parking sensor bracket £176 plus VAT....

I was quoted around £600 from Emblem for replacing all four on the front. The middle two are a piece of cake to fit and just need a drop of black paint to finish them off. The outer two need a bumper off and painted to match the car. This was using those expensive Maserati sensors but I'm tempted to buy those Skoda ones that are identical and ask them how much just for the labour and paint when I get the GTS serviced in December.

Auto audio in wembley did one on my old gt for an hours labour (£105 from recollection). That didn’t include the cost of the sensor (it had simply fallen in) but they are pretty cheap

Thanks all - have asked my local specialist to give me a quote... it’s amazing how reliant on the parking help you become and how unnerving it is trying to park the car without it!.....

I normally get the wife to get out and direct me, if necessary she also can make a beeping noise, but that’s another story.
