    As above really, on the hunt for one. Can only get my MTB in the boot if I take the handlebars off!

    Not on a saloon - - although some years ago I did have Audi's own-brand cross bars on an Avant which didn't have roof rails fitted. It was certainly a very solid fitment.

    But - interestingly, on another forum I frequent (kayaking / canoeing) there is a discussion underway on cross-bar options which includes a worrying tale of a budget bar failing with a kayak on the roof. I'd tend to suggest something like Thule as being a good option to consider - there are certainly cheaper options, but what price safety?

    I have a Saris Bones 2 that's made for saloon-shaped cars and is even designed to clear any boot spoilers that it might have. I don't need it anymore as it doesn't work so well on the Avant (used to have it on mx5's) so could sell if interested?
