    Very easy if it's the rear. Do you have saloon or avant?

    Hi mate,
    Where did you get your sensors from? Where they painted?

    No worries, there replicas but in all honesty the only difference I could see is thst they didn't have a little audi stamp on them there brilliant quality for the price and you wouldn't be able to tell there not original
