    Hi Guys,

    I'm getting an ex-demo 2013 A7 TFSI at the end of the month. It has most of the goodies with one exception. No reversing camera, although it does have the PDC sensors and MMI Graphic. Audi option codes list QK1 & 7X2 there is no rear camera fitted. So I'm assuming QX1 refers to the radar distance sensors for the adaptive cruise?

    My current C6 A6 has the reversing camera fitted, so I'm used to the convenience and added security of having it when reversing. With the more restricted view out the A7 Sportsback, I'd like to get a cam fitted to it.

    I've seen the Kufatec retrofit kits - using OEM parts by the looks of it. Just wondered if anyone has done this mod, specifically for the A7 and whether it was a relatively straight forward installation. I have VCDS so coding not too much of an issue, however will it need component protection unlocked by the dealer?

    if anyone has retrofitted the camera, can they share the parts list?

    I know Nigel is the Retro King, not sure he's tackled this one though...

    TIA,
    John.

    I've fitted one to an A6 and A8, but the A8 did require a boot trim which had to be painted. If you have access to etka and elsawin then you could buy the individual parts, and you then could buy just the harness from kufatec. If you just want a east life then just buy the full kit from kufatec they usually come with good instructions.
