    No it comes through a separate speaker in the boot.

    Oem work through can bus, so you would have to disable them with vcds.

    Why do you want to change them?

    Cheers Scottie,i'm not changing it - i'm picking up my 07 Orange S3 on the weekend and noticed it had the parking sensors in the rear bumper but the headunit has been replaced with a Kenwood multi-media sat-nav jobbie so was wondering where the audible sound was coming from and would i loose this feature due to not having the oem headunit,right thats that sorted now looking to purchase MY09 rear lights - let the spending begin !!

    The DIS is the digital lcd in your speedometer, it has a feature to go into a menu system in the lcd to change some of the cars settings, namelyt my point is the park distance control system as in parking sensors, it should for an 07 car have settings within the DIS menus to change the sound tone the pdc omits & the volume.
