No, it's nowhere near that expensive.
That old story was wrong and a big scare story.

Get the price of the parts from a Nissan dealer and it's around £2.5k for the three sensors, two rams and the ECU. The latter apparently self destructs when activated...

Because I was concerned about this I actually priced the parts up before I bought my MY10 last year and as I said it's around two to three grand tops.

Whereabouts around London are you located?

I know a few garages that can do it, but when the work is done the car has to go to Nissan HPC to be reset.

Doesn't need to go to a dealer to be reset now. Bolt the bits on reset the light using EcuTek.

Also have a really close look at your bonnet for slight buckling or warping. Especially at the rear. Mine needed replacing. (although the HPC didn't initially spot the damage....)

I feel lucky now as the pigeon I hit has cracked all the paint work between the grill and bonnet, it broke the grill and made a small crack into the bumper but didn't deploy and I was a 60mph road doing at least that to say the least.

Interesting to know where these detection zones are on the car, obviously in your case the car has assumed you've just taken out someones shins and it's preparing for a body to land on the bonnet.

Someone else mentioned that it's possible they don't deploy at 'x' speed as it's pointless ie. and hopefully it'll never happen if you take a person out who stumbles into the road at say 80mph whether the bonnet pops up or not really isn't going to make much difference. Anyone know truth in this? (the speed side of things not the chances of survival running into someone at 80mph).

I am in East London, running a fleet so use a place near Leyton.
If you want it wrapped I'd reccommend Robbie at Valet Magic. He is in Camberley, Surrey. Not that far from you and probably knows someone to sort the bodywork too.

Home - Valet Magic
Thanks Rich.

I hace spoken to the OP in regards to sorting his car out :thumbsup:
