Can't measure your Avant's?

Measured from where to where?

Nope, I'm in Montana and the wagon is at 034 right now.

I'd like the measurement from the front of the roof, to the back of the roof, with the hatch open (so, not to include the top part of the rear spoiler/hatch). I'm trying to determine the length of the roof from whatever the rear clearance is (with the hatch open) to the top of the windshield.

I'm trying to figure out what roof boxes will fit, given that I need to be able to tote around 215cm skis.

Thanks!

The kids have the car at school now. I'll get out a tape measure when they get home. I also assume you want the approximate dimensions of the roof rails too. Or does the S4 Avant not have the rails?

Just the length of the roof would be great, thanks very much!

That makes sense. I can measure mine as well if he doesn't measure his today.

70" from the leading edge to the antenna. Add another 6" to the open hatch. Numbers are approximate.

thanks, but estimates don't really help.

Actually, on second thought, could I get the width between roof rails too?

Measurements were to the nearest inch.

Measurements were to the nearest inch. oh, thank you! I misunderstood. Thought you were eyeballing it, lol.


Thanks again.
