    roof rack, storage and towball/bikerack option recommendations - MY15.5

    Once we're out of the gulag we'll be looking to go bush for some camping and I have some spare dollaridoos to treat the vRS to some upgrades for such an event.

    I have a few questions..

    1.can a towball be attached to this car? if so, can a pleb do it or is it recommended a mechanic do it?

    2.do you have any recommendations for a bike rack - similar to this

    3. what roof racks would you recommend?

    4. what pod/egg/storage for said roofracks would you recommend?

    cheers

    1 yes but better to get a pro as wiring needs to be done correctly

    2 you would need a Hayman Reece type towbar for that and remember if you have several bikes on that rack, when you hit a bump the weight can multiply by up to 7 times putting strain on rear of car

    3 there are Octavia Specific racks from dealers
    4 Saw one at dealers last month so ask them
