      for Whiteline ALK and the xBrace. i have both, and Whiteline's bumpsteer kit, too. you will be very happy... just don't skimp on the alignment. i highly recommend corner balancing with that setup. i can provide some alignment specs if you like.

      nice ride...tasty mods too.

      SA gets back-up sensors? are they required by law, standard on SA .:R's, or part of an option package? inquiring minds want to know.

      went to the VW club of SA gym-karting event. Basically you get to run your car on a go kart track. I had to leave before that but I did get in on the enduro karting

      not TPMS...in the pic above, notice that the rear bumper / valance panel has four circular blue items?

      i am assuming they are an IR or transducer based back-up warning system. i've seen plenty of photos of .:R32's from around the globe, but have never seen them before except on the south african models you've posted.

      so, when you're backing up and get close to a wall or post, do you get audible beeps that increase in frequency as you get closer to said object? please advise. i thank you in advance for your time on this item.

      Ah , yes , sorry! That is the PDC ( Park Distance Control ) system. Exactly as you have mentioned they beep according to how close you are to a wall etc and go into a flat tone once you are about to bump.

      With the RCD 510 and RNS510 you can also activate the optical parking system which will give you an optical representation on the screen.

      Hope this helps
