    On my A3 I've got 4 sensors on the front bumper, they defo look OEM, I can see the cabling behind the bumper but can't see where it goes. Thing is I've never heard them beep or dunno how I would actually use them/activate them?
    I've got ETKA & Elsawin and I can't even find them on that?

    Anyone any ideas? Does anyone else have an A3 with them fitted? How do they work/activate?

    oh wait hold on i've just seen your sig. front parking sensors weren't available on the 8P until the 2nd facelift (MY09 onwards). they're definitely not OEM

    Nope, need to trace wiring through, they maybe have a hidden activation button, like oem ones do.

    Ah that makes sense. There's 2 small buttons beside the steering wheel (a red & a green) which I'd never figured out what they were for and don't seem to do anything, I'd been told they might have been for a road angel? Tried them out there and nothing? Must trace the wiring. The previous owner had a RNS-e that they took out before they sold me the car....boooo. Was there a button on that for activating them maybe?

    Nope there wouldn't have been anything like that on RNS-E
