    Hi All,
    Does anyone know if I can get the newer silver roof rails for a 2000-2001 S4 Avant to replace the original black ones...?
    Can't find them on the VAG site.

    Cheers

    Yep, you can if you contact VAG Parts direct I'm sure they will be able to sort you out. Please note its not an easy job.

    Two weeks ago I could have supplied you with a set of RS4 ones.

    No, just time as you have to remove the whole headlining to get to the bolts.

    Shagga - i was going to put the aluminium roof rails and brushed door mirrors on my S4. However upon looking more closely, the rails/door mirrors i thought would not really show up too much being that my car is silver.It is too much of a match IMHO.
    They stand out better on the Rs4 in Avus silver, or a darker colour.
    Doc' said that they were a bit of a bitch to remove/put on.........so i left mine well alone...

    I wish,
    Should be by Saturday but I sold my S3 yesterday and now car-less. In a way I'm pleased the dealer is taking the time to do a proper job (I hope). They're replacing the cam belt & tensioners etc, new water pump, new rear disks and pads, 18" RS4 reps, Facelift badges and a service.
    I have driven it twice and may have to have the smile surgically removed from me moosh.

    lol,

    I just covered my car in paper, in a mates barn, then genlty sanded the bars, then primed, put halford's chrome spray over the top and sealed them.

    look O.K, but i rushed it, so i will be improving on them

    not bad for about 20 quid /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    If your still looking for ally roof rails find out if the A6 will fit the A4 as I know where 2 sets are for £120.
