WANTED: Scirocco Roof Rack

Postby danosborne661 » Fri Oct 16, 2020 12:44 pm

Hi all, new here but just picked up a 2011 1.4 TSI Scirocco yesterday and very happy with it.

I am after a roof rack and have done some research and browsed a few old threads on here and found out it's quite tricky to get a decent one - also if you have one for sale I would love to hear from you :)

- Genuine VW option - If someone has one for sale I would be interested!
- Modula Aluminium rack - Any comments on this? Available for around £130 on ebay
- PreAlpina LP49 - Any comments on this? Available for around £130 on ebay

Other than that, I have seen you can get second hand Thule 754 feet and then Thule Aero bars of your choice for a good price second hand. Thule used to produce the mounting hardware for a Scirocco under part number 1631 which is no longer available, but looking into the documentation you can still buy the front Scirocco mounts (PN 1139 - source https://www.roofracks.co.uk/pdf/1631.pdf) which are the same front mounts from a Ford Cougar Coupe.... Only problem now, what do you use for the rear mounting. The part 1140 in the above manual is no longer avaialble.

Thanks all!
