    Hi Guys, I have a 2009 A6 Le Mans Avant, which I believe is a C6.

    I'm looking at getting a roof rack for the car, and I have the flush fitting rails, with the dimples in them.

    I'm looking on eBay for the roof racks and want to be sure that I buy te right ones.
    What year did the A6 change from a C5 to C6?
    And does anyone have a close up of the C6 fitments of the roof rack?

    Thanks Tom

    I bought these ones (Green Valley UK Car and van roof bars, boxes, bike racks and cycle carriers) via ebay and they have proved fine for my occasional needs. The fixing is a rubber block with the required dimples to slot into the rail on the car (for point of clarification the C6 has flush rails not raised and the C6 Avant was launched in 2005) and they are clamped using two allen bolts. I am sure Thule has a really elegant (and expensive) alternative but I have been happy with these
