I've not ordered rails on my new sportback on purpose as I don't like the look of them but am used to using my two Thule 591 carriers on roof bars on our MINI.
What realistic options are there for cycle carrying on the s3 SB?
I know I could get some roof bars for it and then use my 591s, but I'm a bit concerned about fuel consumption as we tend to do long journeys on the motorway when taking the bikes out (300 miles each way to Cornwall a lot!)
carry them inside is maybe possible some of the time but we do have a Collie dog so she would usually take up the boot.
Rear mounted carrier?? This is where I get lost as I have never owned one and don't know if it would work with the roof spoiler etc?
Is the s3 roof spoiler the same as the a3 sline one?
