Good evening, would it be rude to ask how much for the upgrade?

Reverse parking sensor display - lines on either side get closer and number in centre gives distance from object in meters :)

It's going to be tricky spraying the Sony one white to match your interior

How easy was it to install? Are there different connectors, different software configs etc to worry about?

Steering wheel controls work fine

Easy peasy as long as you have the stereo with the connections shown on the right:

Same as my answer above - you need to take your stereo out and check the connections on the back. If it's like the stereo on the right hand side (single connection on the left) it is a straight swap :)
