I'm curious to see if anyone has fitted a Yakima fairing on their Avant, doesn't really seem possible in front of sunroof and I think it would look weird behind.

If it's anything like the racks for b5 passats then there are two OE racks, and that's the older of the two styles.

Added Thule direct to the list of links. You can buy right off the main page. Their customer service is top notch, and their shipping response time is fantastic. They really go above and beyond on each call to make sure you're happy. I have dealt with them directly 4 or 5 times, and each time have had a great experience.
Replacement parts and all sorts of other bits and pieces can be ordered from them too. If you're trying to put a frankenstein rack together they are more than happy to help you with parts and ideas.
So, definetly call them if you're doing Thule. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
