Roof Bars

Having come from the dark side I have a set of roof bars for a Scirocco and wondered if VW sold a fitting kit they would fit my MkVII Golf 3Dr
The rear bar is narrower than the front for a Roc, don't know if this is the same for a Golf.
Any info much appreciated.

Depends on the manufacturer of your bars. Mine are Rhino Rack and I pulled them off a focus my neighbor traded in. Fit kit swap and I had myself a cheap rack

For a three door just go with the OEM bars.

I have Whispbars but they don’t make a 3 door version.

I’d never suggest OEM bars. They limit your selection of accessories to pretty much only OEM, they’re ridiculously tall, and no fairing without building your own solution

Is there another option with a 3 door?
