If you have a sedan, these will not fit. You need a wagon that has the roof rails that run the length of the roof.

I thought that was the case , I was just showing how it can be a bit confusing.

Any tips on what set to buy ?

For a sedan, you will need thule load (cross) bars,

a "fit kit" for a b5.5 and a 400 "foot pack".

And lock cylinders if you are so inclined.

With the above, you will have a rack that fits your car - search ebay for the above terms and you will find what you are looking for.
