    3 or 5dr & problem is boot lid racks with the binding ropes don't like spoilers to much, so roof system needs to be considered or fit towbar for this.

    OEM RETROFITS - CRUISE CONTROL - SAT NAV - BLUETOOTH - AMI - HEADLIGHT SYSTEMS

    PARKING SYSTEMS - DIAGNOSTICS - FAULT FINDING - BODYWORK - PAINTWORK

    Remove Front and Rear Wheels, drop one side of rear seats and carefully load bikes like a jigsaw.
    Should be able to fit 3 people plus 3 bikes in easily this way, and at no extra cost.

    Hi guys. I'm thinking of getting a roof rack of sorts that I could use for bikes or maybe a roof box when we go away. Not sure how to fit aftermarket bars as no obvious mounting points on my roof.

    Is there a way of retrofitting Audi roof bars? They would look good and hopefully will be straightforward attaching Thule boxes / bike carriers to these.

    Thanks

    Edit - I see the Thule bike racks have feet that clip onto each corner so I wouldn't need the Audi roof bars.

    Would be interested in knowing if these could be fitted as they look good imo

    I have a 3d 09 s line and the guy before me forced roof bars on and split the rear window seal so roof bars are a Nono . Like someone has said if you drop front and rear wheels off they will go in the back with a tarp down or something. Other than that its gonna have to be a tow bar jobbie, sorry fella! Rear mounted ones dont work unless you are not fussed about your spoiler getting pulled off.
