    I had the same issue when i bought my s-line rear bumper so I bought the oem sensors for £40 and had them painted and fitted in without wiring them. It looked perfect but didn't work obviously, then later on i just bought the other bits slowly and wired it up. its well worth it mate and if your in no rush slowly buy the other parts and fit it in your own time.

    no i found a breaker that had them so i got the set, iirc Audi sell them at something silly like £70 each!!
    also there are 2 sizes of sensors so make sure you get the right ones for your bumper, the larger sensors for older bumpers and smaller sensors for newer bumpers... i think the size changed around 2007. there may also be another size for 8P3 bumpers but not entirely sure.

    Ive got a set of sensors i will be putting up for sale if you're interested. They're the bigger ones which i think all the S3 bumpers use and the smaller ones are for the new non S3/S-line bumpers.
