    i too have parking sensors but also the reverse cam... its soo useful to have both, they go hand in hand. you can see whats behind you but when your too close there is the noise to let you know as well

    use the wing mirrors to see if you hit anything on the sides, and then the cam to see whats behind and just listen out to the beeps... its easy bro!

    Car looking very nice Amar ....I'm feeling them RS/TT Alloys as I have the same but in 18"'s.and in shiny black.

    You have matched them lovely with the paint colour of you car ..... Perfectooo :o.k: salute :salute:



    Ash .....Have you thought about a Cam on the side of the car somewhere ...so we can look to see how far away from the kerb are alloys are ?

    Just a thought...

    Kerbbing alloys need to be rectified!!!! :ermm:

    you can mount tiny cameras under the wing mirrors and have them at the perfect angle to see the kerb. or you can just learn to drive :undwech:

    May I ask witch ones you used? Read about someone putting original Audi A8 Led numberlights on their sportback (2008), and they were a perfect fit without any errors?
    Did you have to do any VAGCOM-coding with these?

    I think Audi themselves or at least one of the better quality car modding magazines should be aware of this ambitous work.
    Nice to see good workmanship - so much more credable than endless posts about sticking on spoilers et al.

    Hi - how easy was it to fit the RS3 front bumper? did you have to chage the side pannels too?
