Mrs struggling without parking sensors all the added extras on my a3 and no parking sensors is a bit mad. Is there a aftermarket kit to diy has anyone had much luck ? Thanks
Guessing the bumper has to come off ?I found drilling the bumper is the easy part in hindsight, but the thought of it is worrying.
If you're comfortable taking the rear bumper off that's the hardest part done imo.
Measure where you want them to go, masking tape over the area, the cheap kit comes with the hole saw, drill the pilot hole and go for it, takes a couple seconds to make the hole.
I hope that the case on my bumper the holes being marked already! Should be easy enough then.On the inside of both the front and rear bumpers there is location markers for sensors, indicating where you need to drill.
Drill a hold in the centre then with something like this https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https://www.ebay.com/ulk/itm/263930683257, you’ll be able to press the right size hole.
Aftermarket press-in sensors look ugly in my opinion but still function the same. I think cobra do a flush mount kit which is still cheaper than genuine Audi.
If you have the RNSE head unit you’ll need both front and rear sensors to see the distance monitor appear on the screen.
Does anyone have a link or part numbers for fitting front parking sensors and a rear camera? I have 59 plate S3 that has rear sensors, and the rnse satnav unit, cheers

Excellent write up and picsI've fitted front sensors to my TT 8J which uses the same electric parts as the A3 8P https://www.ttforum.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=1837385
