Been a member for a year.. I was just in the store 3 days ago but I was looking for jackets at the time. what I meant was if the used box is too long my hatch will hit it.

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

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

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.

Oldman 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 !!!!!!
