    Are there any other choices besides Thule?
    Right now I have the Thule mounting feet and cross bars but the feet are so low profile that they prevent the open sky from tilting up or opening. Plus the feet are scratching my rails like crazy from removing/installing.
    I've been searching the net but can't find any other choices that use the integrated roof rails. Does anything else exist?

    Have you tried here

    They do Altera as well - is there not an Audi solution?

    I had not seen that brand before.
    Thanks for the link!

    Interesting that they only have the one style roof bars available for the integrated roof rails. The aluminum version is more like my current thule rack. Looks like there is a chance I could use my current Thule Criterium bike carriers with the aluminum version but not the version I would need to get for my roof rails. Without some possible modification to the carrier hardware anyway.
    They also don't say if it clears the open sky or not. Anyone else have these? I may have to email them... too bad the US dollar sucks big monkey balls right now... otherwise I'd be more willing to take a chance. :sorry:
