    Hey guys,

    Sorry if this has been posted before, I did a quick search but only the usual standard drill hole in bumper sensors came up.

    I don't really want to drill holes into the bumper so I saw this, VEBA NUMBER PLATE MOUNT CAR REVERSE PARKING SENSOR KIT:Amazon.co.uk:Car & Motorbike

    Anyone know if this will fit? As the Audi A3 number plates are quite high up? Any effect on the performance?

    Any information would be appreciated, thanks guys

    Will

    i think the one that fits in the boot handle might look better. It replaces the handle with a little bit that sticks out.

    Really? not sure how they would work if they are behind the bumper though, but a link would be good.
    Thanks alot :)

    Anyone know anything about the one i linked though? my main concern would be the recommended height of use?

    Cheers

    Awesome thanks just had a look and first thoughts are impressive! although im not much of a DIY person lol.
    I would probably end up paying someone to fit it for me or buy the number plate version which looks alot more simple to install.

    Sorry to bring back an old thread, those of you who have retrofitted parking sensors, do the cheap ones work fine?

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/121138928603

    The link above cost £20 and you get a wireless display aswell?

    Any info would be great
    Thanks
    Will

    The aftermarket 2 sensor versions are not that good, only obstructions in the centre part of the rear bumper are picked up, coverage is about the space between the rear lights. With 4 sensors, the corners of the car are covered as well. If you have sat nav then just fit a reverse camera.
