Several OEM B5.5 roof racks have been for sale the last few months. Are you only interested if it comes with a bike rack attachment?

When they go on sale here, they go quick. Most potential sellers don't scan the "WTB" ads, they just go straight to their own "FS" thread--especially for hot items where it's a sellers' market.

ya thats what im worried about... I check it atleast once a day hoping that that is the case but still no luck. thanks for the adivce!

by the way, does anyone know where I could but a new set of racks and a bike rack? I went to the stealership today and was quoted $405 for the set (175 for the bike rack and 230 for the roof rack)... If I could find them for about 100 and mabey 150-170, I would be happy...

Have you tried checking on eBay? Prices are not great but not terrible.

Fixmy59bug (Robert at Riverside VW in suburban LA) offers some great discounts on OEM parts through this website.

VWVortex has many more members but it seems far more Jetta and GTI owners than Passat owners. Not sure you could get a rack there vs. here since people often post the same items on both sites, but it would be worth a look.
