    Optical parking sensor prices

    Hey y'all, this may seem a pointless question but what kind of price should I be looking at to get the genuine Audi optical parking kit fitted? Front and back including fitting, colour coding and VAT.
    I've had a look around and the best I've found is £848.

    Thanks

    Chris

    Kind off steep just to add sensors..imho I'd buy the ones that clip to / around the number plate and put a timer on the front sensors to auto shut off after about 30secs if reverse not selected.

    £848, you sure that's 100% correct as seems very low tbh, its usually a bit more, about £300 more, assuming you have a mk2 rns-e already & dependent on year another module is needed aswell.

    Ping a PM if you want a price from us, we do know the system inside out.

    Remember you'll need a new front and rear bumper with PDC holes from the factory too, I recently installed rear OEM PDC and required a new bumper with the holes and holder.

    The company I was looking at quoted £848 and said it's all genuine parts, I have the mk2 RNSe with the gloss surrounded screen. They took my car reg and that's the quote I have. You don't need new bumpers.

    Will this fit on an A3 8P though? As the number plates are quite high?

    Cheers

    Interesting pic.
    My car is same colour and bumper design, but the factory fit sensor above fog light, is slightly lower down and outboard.

    Nope, they're in the marked positions, as bumpers have cross marks where pdc maybe drilled if spec'd. so must be a change up by audi, but oem located for sure as I have the same bumper & measured this & my bumper was oem pdc holed as such.
