    Genuine Audi roof bars bolt onto the roof directly (holes in the roof itself) and do not clamp-on like third party bars. The cross pieces clamp to the bars. Quite a different fixture from the Thule models.

    Thank you. I've seen a locating bolt hole for the front bar, it's the rear I'm curious about.

    Has anyone got a picture?

    Sorry to hijack the thread but I have the audi ones that fit under the window rubber and clamp to the roof. The rubber parts on the feet could do with replacing, any idea where I could get some spare bits from?
