I’m having a professional install this coming week by an installer who has done a dozen or so ALP projects.

He probably hasn’t done one on a 2020 A7 (C8 platform), so I’m looking for suggestions on placement of my heads. The car has two big honkin’ perspex windows in front; one for radar and one for a laser as part of the driver assistance package plus a small camera and two other small short range radar heads lower in the grill.

I have 2 RX and 1 TX planned, front and back. Here are views of the car:

The two RX heads won’t fit into the top grill slat, so I was thinking of putting them outboard of the existing Perspex blocks on the second row. We’ll have to cut one vertical slat for the RX heads to fit, but I really want to get in those corners by the headlights. If it’s a better placement, I could go to the third row down. The TX head would be placed on the third row between the logo and license plate either left or right of the small centerline camer

On the rear, there’s a nice shelf under the tail lights. I’d place the RX heads above the A7 and Quattro badges and the TX head just to the left of the external trunk latch (there’s a camera just to the right of the latch).

Any comments or suggestions are appreciated. Install starts Tuesday. I have all parts in hand.

if you can sneak a Tx by the centre red id say thats your best bet.

Otherwise green.

I’d go to the third row like you were thinking.
