I'm interested in this one too as I've got a 3.0 TDI Sport coming 2 weeks today. I was told by my dealer that Audi have just announced (2/3 days ago) that roof bars and a tow bar will be available for the A5 although no release date has been set yet for the roof bars. I've asked my dealer the detachable tow bar so that I can get a trailer attached for my bikes. So hang in there it's coming soon.
As posted before, Audi do make a set of roof bars. However they only fit later chassis 28000 onwards.:wall: I only found this out after ordering waiting, driving to the dealer, collecting, trying to mount them on the car and reading in the instructions for the bars that they do not fit my chassis. Furious that the dealer didn't bother explaining this to me when I ordered.
I've seen some users post that here that they are using mont blanc bars. Can anyone clarify whether these work on all chassis or just post 28000 like the audi ones? I believe the difference is that there is a fitting bolt inside the door arch on the later chassis that fits into a groove in the roof bar fitting. Is this the case with the Mont Blanc bars as well?
