    Ive located an audi s3 sportback 2010 8p3 bumper which has parking sensors im wondering if i can just swap the bumper straight over from my 2006 a3 sportback sport model which also has factory sensors ? And then take my sensors out of my 8p2 sport bumper and put them in the pre cut parking sensor holes on the 2010 s3 bumper ? And then have the bumper sprayed and paint blended into my rear quarter and boot lid to match

    thanks

    The s3 8p3 bumper does not have the sensors included as the man has sold the parking aid sensors and module etc this is why i need to know whether my sensors fit the holes

    You would need to cut the holes bigger to fit, but yes you could do all that.

    If you pull the sensor brackets of the older bumper, then reuse these with the newer bumper, job done.
