    MK3 Roof rack options

    Evening all. New member to this forum.

    Recently purchased a '97 Golf CL 1.8 as a daily run around. So many dramas already - car wouldn't start, and as it turns out, it was one simple thing. The coolant temp sensor. Amazing.

    Anyway. I ride bikes. And I need roof racks. Car doesn't have a tow bar. I've been having much difficulty satisfying this need.

    I've just finished scouring the forum in the hope to find some information, but only to find a couple of threads with people selling some (Pre 2012).

    The 64 million dollar question:

    Do you really have to permanently fit roof racks for the MK3? I'm aware Prorack make them for the MK3 - however I'm not yet prepared to spent $450 to fit racks to my sub $1000 car. I've been looking at many photos online of the MK3, and to find a few here and there with Thule racks. According to Thule, they no longer make them for the MK3.

    The other question is; is there a Thule foot pack to suit? I had a 2013 Focus ST with the Thule racks (754) which grabbed under the door via a clamp. Is there something similar for the MK3?

    Please help!

    Thanks for getting back to me Hayden.

    That's awesome. But now the issue I face is, getting one. Are there any other alternatives?

    I'll be posting a WTB soon...

    They're somewhat hard to find. No longer made.

    Jump onto VWWatercooled.com.au
    Much more mk3 oriented forum.

    Then hope on Facebook and search for a group called Aussie Mk3's.

    Guaranteed you'll find in those two places
