    I think they are the dealer fitted ones mate, never seen a set positioned there. They dont fit flush like the factory ones either. Not saying they arent genuine though because Audi dealers do sell retrofit kits. Only other thing I can think of if not is that its had a rear accident and they have used a non sensor bumper to repair it and fitted the sensors in the wrong place.

    The fact you have a receipt for fitting tells me it was a dealer fit kit. If the car had them from new there wouldnt be a receipt as it would have arrived in the country already fitted. Also due to the age of the car, the IPOD kit was also added later (I have this in mine too)

    Sorry , i was just asking did the dealer fit them aftermarket ,

    But as you have a receipt for them it means they are dealer fitted.

    IE : when the car is built at the factory ( factory fitted ) , not when the dealer fits them and issues a receipt ( dealer fitted )

    The reason i originally asked was i am looking to find a picture of dealer fitted parking sensors , because i am selling a rear bumper with factory fitted ones and somebody has told me a price a dealer has quoted them ( for dealer fit ) i wanted to show them the difference to factory fitted, i assumed yours where dealer fit , as they look different to mine.
