    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?

    Dead easy to swap over,just remove grab handles,and air abg pannels,pull roof liner down a little undo the bolts and job done,mine took about a hour to change over.

    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...

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

    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...
