    Roor Bars and DIY mods?

    Hi all, Post virgin please be gentle.
    I am after a genuine set of roof bars for my Avant (with roof rails). I think Ł140 at dealers is a bit steap. Anybody know where I can get some?

    I also found a site where Audi DIY mods were desribed with Pics. I cant find it again. I am looking to add a front centre armrest, reversing sensors (my wife drive the car a lot) and red LEDs in the interior light unit.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Ebay - I set up a saved search and just kept on bidding until I got some for a good price (after one bloke said that they were broken after the end of the auction and then sold them again 3 months later)
    http://www.vagparts.co.uk - you have to email them as not everything is on the site.
    www.roofbox.co.uk - for non-genuine bars

    And maybe

    I am also after fitting an iPod cable, if I win an auction on Ebay. Has anybody done this and is it any good?

    Are you sure that the Audi roof bars aren't simply rebranded Thule ones? I had a look at some A3 roofbars in the dealers and they were.

    I ended up getting Thule ones for around £70 all in for brand new (feet and bars).
