And the best version of that Passat is the 1.8L 5 speed 4Motion. ( no longer an available drive train option)

I would not compare it to the A4 as it has the interior room of an A6.

Best A6 ever built !!!!!!

Get it. Wax it. Ride it.

I have a 154. It's my buddy's car, we were test fitting to see if it would work. I do have a wheeled bag which adds some length. I had the seat wayyy back and reclined, for most people it'd be fine.

Here's the setup I had on my B5 S4 sedan, which is the same B5 bodystyle as your A4. It was an all Yakima setup: Q clips, Q towers and round bars. A Thule square bar setup would also be relatively more economical than a Whispbar or Thule Aero setup. I ran the Yakima Fat Cat 6 ski rack in Winter and Thule Sidearm bike racks in Summer.

I use the same rack for my mountain bike. But I use the Snowboard Carrier for the snowboard.

I'm looking into this now for my Impreza. Shit's expensive, but think of it this way - you'll never have to buy a rack again.

I'd look around craigslist too, I bet you could find a used rack for less, just gotta make sure its compatible with your car.
I want a cargo box for my Outback but geez man the prices :-/ I know people said to check online at craigslist and the like but it always ends up being something that wont fit my car.

The new a4's are too big. GTI is the identical engine, with the exception that they tweak the a4 for an extra 7 hp. Very fun car, although the Golf R is what I want next.

I ordered a Thule Force Aplin for this year. But I will only have it on when we have 3 or more people.

Join REI? You get a coupon when you join, get to pick exact size/color. The new adjustments and adaptability to different bars make 'em pretty nice. Now that I have one.....can't imagine not.
