      Finally Vw introduced these, add your name to the list if you would like a base bar system....They should be out in December of this year. I will be selling them for $300 shipped (regular vw list is $370)

      Call me weird but not many cars look as cool as VWs do with a carrier on top.

      So, I'm sure others have experience with these bars on earlier models of VW, but how do they affect mileage? any wind noise or whistling when installed?

      Include me for a set!

      Had the carrier bars for my 2008 jetta and couldn't complain. There is a good amount of wind noise, some have custom fab'd a wind deflector from another company to the stock front bar. Some drilling is required.

      I see in the pics that they show just large objects (kayak, luggage carrier) mounted on top. Will these be able to carry a bike or two, or will I still have to look into a Thule set up?

      Thanks!

      Vw also has the bike carrier attachments that will work with this setup

      If you want to look at another company that does attachments for these bars, try rockymounts.com. I've got the bike and ski attachments and work great. Build quality is very sturdy and will hold up.

      Thanks for the info. I will check into those as well. And I agree with whoever it was a few posts up, that VW's just look awesome with roof rails!

      Any updates on availability? I hear from my dealer here in S. Jersey that they won't be in until February. If you're getting them sooner I'd be interested in the pre-order. Thanks.
