I've not looked at an A8L closely in a while. If it's the same design that
the AllRoad has, it's a series of ultrasonic sensors that are mounted in
the rear bumper. You'll see them as small 3/4" round dots. At the very
least, the bumper would need to have provisions for this. It's probably
just holes drilled and the sensors mounted. The instrument cluster would
probably need to be recoded to make allowments for the backup sensors, so
checking to see what recoding is available for it or the convenience
control module would be a good indication if it was possible to retrofit.
Lastly, there would be a backup control module which would need to be
installed. The wiring should all be there. What additional wiring would be
needed should be available. At what cost? Who knows. But I'm sure it's
