    S3 owners with factory OEM rear parking sensors?

    Hi, could some kind soul with the factory fit PDC sensors in the lower rear bumper trim please have a quick measure of the diameter of the sensors / hole?

    Im picking up the trim with the pre formed holes, but need to find out on suitable parking sensors that will fit

    thanks
    Dave

    Dave, the round holes in the rear trim measure 24mm in diameter and the sensors are 23mm in diameter.

    Is it an easy retro fit? I actually prefer the look of the rear panel with the sensors, looks nicer. I don't have parking problems though

    Thanks Dave, I thought you got lucky finding one at a breakers yard. Dealer prices changed my mind about a retrofit but it's something I'd like to do at some point. Good luck with it.

    I agree Sam the rear looks far too plain without the sensors, not that I need them lol.
