Try seaching here. But eBay has sets of four for 171.49 including postage. This is about as cheap as they can be gotten. Mine are 6 months old and work great.
Seach Audi tire pressure, 433 Mhz on eBay. Should return a bunch.

All the sets for that price were blue in color, and their long list of applications did not include the A8. And when I enetered the make, model and year it explicitly said not for my car.

What brand did you buy?

+1, and yes to 433mhz; for the US.

Bought two sets off here. Worked perfectly. The valve stems that are included are garbage (as all are included in non-oem kits) but discount tire used brand new audi OEM ones they had instead.. for free .

Linked page has 20 differently priced sensors, all for A8. $312 is a set of four Bery (same as OEM) sensors. At Audi they are priced $145.82 each (4D0 907 275 C)

05 sensors are 149 and 04 sensors 312...why would 05 sensors not work in an 04 ?
