    Cycle rack on A3 S-line?

    Received my new A3 this morning - lovely stuff.
    Unfortunately, it turns out that the dealer accessory Audi cycle rack won't fit the S-line due to the roof spoiler being larger than the standard A3.
    Of course, they've taken it back and not charged me.
    Anyone have a solution for cycle carrying on an A3 S-line that doesn't obscure the reg plate & lights?

    The Audi Roof bars can carry four Bicycles? 140 for Roof Bars and 80.00 each for the Bicycle holders IIRC

    Re: Cycle rack on A3 S-line?

    I have an A3 S-line and I have just ordered a roof rack, with a cycle carrier from a company called The roof rack shop uk. It's made by Thule and cost about 193 all in.

    The parts I ordered are

    1 x Thule 869 Rapid Sysetm Alloy Aero Bars (Pair)
    1 x Thule 750 Rapid system Gutterless Foot Pack
    1 x Thule 544 Key lock Barrels
    1 x Thule rapid fitting kit 1314
    1 x Thule 590 ProRide Cyecle Carrier.

    It's easy to put together, looks good, and is very stable.

    Thanks for that. Certainly sounds like the best solution.

    Anyine tried a Thule 9107 high-mount rear cycle rack on an A3 S-line?
    Remember it's for an S-line, because I want to find out if the roof spoiler will get in the way.
