    My dealer told me they would retro fit RRs for the same price as Factory fit... 225. Black or Alu. We have had Alu on last 2 8P A3SB and they look great BUT on the BE in order you can only have Black.

    Not really, we don't do modding and if the BE is only produced with Black Roof Bars that's what we are having, Shame really the Alu ones really look good on Black cars.

    Only really buying a BE for the Bose, Tints and FBMFSW really and should retain value better longer term. To be honest the standard S Line looks good to me!

    Will keep my eyes open for Alu RR's. Quite looking forward to BE, actually my wifes car but tend to use regularly when more seats are needed.

    Was wondering whether to wait for new A3 cos of the wait but hopefully it will be worth it.

    Is that for the rails and to fit? Seems like an excellent price if it is as headlining must be dropped, drilling holes etc...

    That's what they told me 'fitted' . It was when they were trying to source a car that didn't have them so maybe a del to be done.
