    Can anyone recommend any roof bars for a S3?

    I've used Thule bars before, but the listing on their web site only show bars for an A3.
    Does the S3 have the same roof/gutter etc as an A3?

    I'm fairly sure they're the same on both cars.

    If your interested I've got a pair of Audi roof bars that are surplus to requirements - part no 8L0 071 126 purchased from an Audi dealer. Very similar to the Thule bars with rubber feet and lockable covers. They don't fit my new A3. If your interested send me a PM with your email address and I'll send you a scan of the first 2 pages of the instructions so that you can see what their like.

    Just been out and got a Thule Rapid System listed for a 3 door A3 96-02 and it fits my S3 a treat. Top quality and very easy to fit/remove.
    Thule part Nos are bars 761, foot pack 750 and fitting kit 1038 if this helps anyone.
