    Black Roof Bars

    What cars are compatible?

    I have Chromes on my B6 and would like Black ones off the B7, but i wondered are passat roof bars the same?

    Anyone in the know?

    I have black bars in my B6 and would love to swap them for chrome ones!

    Looks a pain it the arse to swap them over mind you.

    I'd prefer a straight swap with the lad who wants the black ones.

    Thanks for the offer anyway.

    yes and no, yes you can, but it would leave holes in the roof, so its a body shop job to do it

    You'd need to fill the hole first, but could vinyl over the repair to hide it.
    Have seen a B5 RS4 with the rails removed - looked ace.

    Just about to swap my B5 chrome ones for black ones too...

    I joined just to see the pics, ha! Oh, and one day when I get an RS4 i'll already be a member

    It is indeed a fit car, worth a look at.

    Have a look at this link: http://www.audizine.com/forum/showth...ing-roof-rails

    There's something about the "clean look" but there's also something that is a little wrong

    Mmm yeh, this one too off AZ - I'm not convinced though..... I think the bars give some visual aggression, maybe the RS4's have enough of that to get away with out, but I'm not sure lower models do:

    I reckon with the right look the B6 looks ace without roof bars. Some do look rather odd though...
