    Sorry i can't be any help here BUT.... I did see a missano red A3 S-Line sportback with roof rails in Chesterfield Tesco last night (5-sh).

    No joke, one of the nicest A3's i've ever seen. If it belongs to anyone on here.... Nice work sir!

    If you don't want to go the Audi route - check roofbox.co.uk out also.

    I've got Thule bars - bought them to use on the Golf I used to have - only thing I had to change was the footpack to make them fit the Audi.

    cheers.

    I just wondered as the roof rails dont look that high off the roof if that makes sense.... how many bikes you got mounted?

    any pictures??

    You have to fit the cross bars and then the bike fittings on top, I picked genuine audi ones up off ebay for about 35 if you need some pictures I can get them at the weekend, although I don't have any bike attachments yet

    They should be fine mate - mine doesn't have roof rails, but that link in my original post shows that Thule do a set to fit when you do have roof rails.

    I normally have 3 bikes on the roof - could easily get 4 on if I had another bike carrier though.

    I'm doing the Norwich 100 ride in a weeks time and will have 3 road bikes on the roof then for the trip to Norwich - will get some pics for you

    EDIT - as Steve says, cross bars first 1 at front and 1 at rear and then the bike carriers go on top of the cross bars.
