    Not mine btw, I wish it was though!!!

    Are you gonna buy the parts new or look for a second hand bumper? I want the sensor strip too, not because I cant park lol but for me it suits the S3 rear-end nicely.

    Ive brought a normal parking kit, but its the only sound one which sounds oem (i think)

    ive fitted them in but just need to wire them up into the reverse light,

    parking sensors are just for the safer option :)

    Fair enough then

    You need to watch the scope of the sensors - some older ones dont pick up very much at all - if the bollards happen to fall inbetween the sensors you might still smack it

    My OEM parking sensors

    First thought when buying the car was 'they've got to go!' but having used them i realized how handy they are, and they look pretty good too.
