    Bike Rack

    I know this has been posted before and not very long ago but would gonna ask again.

    Can you get a bike rack to fit a S-line Sportback 2006 ?

    I looked at the roof mount option but the roof bars wrap around the roof and cause the rubber window seals to push outwards.

    What about the rear mount 1 or 2 bike rack options....Will this fit because I have the S-line rear spolier....

    Looking at it yesturday its sat on top and looks like a glue on fixture. Will the pull down straps pull it off?
    Has anyone done this yet?

    Personally I think this would be a much better place to park your bike, might have a few problems convincing the missus though...

    Can't see any rear-mount working (except a towbar one) because the S-line spoiler obstructs the way that they normally hook into the gap between the hatch door and the roof.

    I looked for ages for a solution for my S-line (3dr, not a Sportback) and settled for roof bars in the end. Note that even the official Audi bike rack doesn't work on an S-line. I posted the roof bar details somewhere recently - just search for my post.
