    Is that the part that the mirror with 3 lugs clips on to after it's glued to the screen?

    mate nothing is glued onto the screen.
    the sensor above fits into a bracket. that is held to the screen with a clip. then the auto dimming mirror is clipped onto the the outer side of the bracket which holds the sensor. finally some plastics cover up the wiring

    the sensor i am selling detects how much light there is outside and also feels any pressure on the windscreen from rain that hits the windscreen.

    This should be fine for the A4, though i have not wired one up on an A4 so not 100% on the full fitting list... i am sure there are some guides on the A4 but from what i remember its not too different than the A3

    for the complete Auto lights pack retro fit for the A3 you need to get the following parts:

    Auto lights install...

    rain sensing windscreen (changed through insurance)
    rain and light sensor (this one i have for sale)
    bracket for rain and light sensor - 4F0 907 671 A
    gel pad for rain sensor - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/RAIN-LIGHT...item19c4c3b024
    interior rear view dimming mirror - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/audi-a3-a4...item4ab34398a5
    headlight switch for auto lights (on halogen headlights - 8J2 941 531 L) (on Bi-Xenon Headlights with DRL - 8J2 941 531 E)
    Coming home button connector - 4D0 971 636
    repair pins for connectors (x4) - 000 979 009 E
    Wiring loom for autolights install - http://www.kufatec.co.uk/shop/produc...udi-A3-8P.html


    If you want/need I can install the whole lot for you.

    I live in london mate, as it says on the location on the right side :p
    I can travel too though...

    yes you need a new windscreen, its a fair bit of work to do but i would recommend to get all the parts first (except the windscreen) and then we would fit it all together and test it out. Once we are sure it all works correctly then just get the windscreen changed over to complete the install.

    looks so much better when fitted

    you realise that made no sense right?

    the sensor is just that... a sensor! the windscreen has the right bracket to hold it in and also has the surrounding area blacked out so that you cannot see any of the wires.
    the sensor also has a rain sensor part in it as well as the light sensor so that it will do the auto wipers. again without the correct bracket on the windscreen and the extra bracket that holds that sensor in place (i put the part number up above) it wont be able to detect and rain on the windscreen.
    also the bracket that is on the windscreen cannot be bought separately
