Snowboard Roof Rack for Naked Car

I drive a 2002 Audi A4 which has no roof racks. Does anyone have any suggestions about possible roof rack solutions for 2 snowboards? Trying to keep costs as low as possible.

Just wondering what everyone else does in my situation?

Both Thule and Yakima make racks that will work with your Audi. They don't give that shit away, but it works. Otherwise readimag's advice is about as good as it's going to get for you.

That is the contingency plan if I can't find a cost effective solution. Just wanted to save some space inside the car+trunk area.

Check out Inno racks. I had these on my Infiniti G35. I am sure they make one for the A4. Much cheaper than Thule and Yakima but good quality.

Still have mine sitting around in the garage. If you are in the NYC area, I am looking to sell it.

I think you're looking at around minimum $400 for the entire setup. And that's just for your basic rack. More $ for aerodynamics, bigger racks, coffins, etc.

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 am from Ohio but I'll definitely look into your suggestion.

If you end up laying the seat down you will wanna put some plastic down or set them in a board bag for your ride back. Usually after a long day of riding snow will pack all around your bindings and areas that you can't wipe off and will melt in your car. Just a little heads up. You might already know that tho.

That was the main reason I invested in roof racks. No wiping, just slap in and click. End of story.

Look on craigslist for used Thule or Yakima setups. Then purchase an appropriate kit fit.
