    How easy is it to remove chrome roof rails, and do they leave any marks or evidence behind?

    Seen an A3 that I like but has roof rails.

    Why don't you like the rails? I think they really set off the sportbacks shape. As for removing them, they are bolted on so yes you would need a trip to the bodyshop!

    Funny that it took me ages to find one with them. I'd stick with them as most find them desirable give it a go for a while you can always get them removed later but would require a really good bodyshop so you can't tell it's been done
