    Yes, I have the thule bars on my S3 for carrying my mountain bike, they work well.

    I was told by the local audi dealer that audi has stopped producing roof bars for the a3, he said that they were damaging the cars. I've no idea if this is actually true or just dealer spouting rubbish.

    There are some arrows on the rear glass to indicate the position and the its a matter of slipping the rack underneath the window seal. You'll soon see once you look.

    I've bought a rack for mine, I'll check the make tonight but it cost about 80. And is compatible with Thule bike racks etc. I did read somewhere that the Audi one wasn't compatible with Thule stuff.

    I've got Thule roof bars with Halfords Bike carriers. Whoever owned my A3 previously has had roof bars on and it has scratched the roof slightly but a good polish hides most of it. I have to be careful when fitting/removing/using mine.
