I traded in the Santa Fe for an MK6 GLI and need ALP placement recommendations
Still have the 2 RX and 1TX sensors for the front, planning on getting rear heads for the car

Red are for the regular heads and the yellow is the TX head location. The VW logo will make it hard to place it right in the middle so I'm going to have to put the TX head on either side.

Red and yellow look good. I'd suggest 22-27 inches RX separation (inside edge to inside edge) if you can. I don't have the GLI any more so can't measure it myself to see if that will work. ALP do provide install guidelines on minimum separation from TX to RX too, so make sure that's right. And also make sure the TX is sufficiently above ground level too.

Also, check my install thread for how to get through the firewall, it's pretty easy but you'll have to remove the battery to get in there.

Thanks for the replies

I know a few other VW owners on here have similar setups and they seem to work fine.

I think those locations is what I'll go with if TX sensor doesnt have to be on a certain side.

Don't think left or right of the emblem matters for the TX. But test against the tough guns you face and tweak if a weakness is revealed.
