    Best Roof Rack Option for a 2006 Audi A4 (B7)

    Just switched over to sedan from SUV and am looking at rook rack options for hauling my burly bikes around. I have the B7 body style Audi A4 3.2. I have traditionally been after hitch style racks so this is unchartered and seemingly very expensive territory. I wanted to see what Audi owners have tried and recommend as a good rack option for the A4. OEM looks to be the sleekest and least traumatic to the roof of the car but obviously costs a pretty penny. Thoughts on Yakima and Thule? I want a rack that will likely take two bike skids for an easly double bike haul. Thanks for the input!
    Keep the rubber side down

    Something that might save a few dollars would be to buy the fit kit (which is specific to your car) and then find thule or yakima bars and bike accessories on craigslist. Or you might even be able to find the fit kit on an audi forum?

    Check craigslist for sure. If no luck go with the OEM Votex (thule) bars from the dealership. VW/Audi have some pretty nice attachements that allow you to keep the front tire on. I really enjoy mine. and got the bars, and two attachements for about $400.
