Just a heads up.
Some idiot is selling knock-off Chinese roof rails for the 8P Sportback on Ebay
Audi A3 RS3 S3 Sportback ROOF RAILS BARS Aluminium Rare Retrofit RACK Brand New | eBay
Muggins here bought a set, £340 all in believing they were the genuine article (every pic he has listed of them are genuine, we talked in depth over Ebay messaging and the seller confirmed they were genuine), not so, don't get me wrong they're roof bars that may or may not fit an A3 Sportback but they're not genuine Audi, the fittings are not the same as supplied by Audi and they will be going nowhere near my car that's for sure.
Problem I now have is I bought them outwith Ebay to save a few £ in his seller fees, although thankfully I never paid gift payment so hopefully Paypal will encourage him to refund my Payment in full.
First time I've ever been caught out this bad on Ebay, live and learn I guess.
