Availability Of Low-Profile Aero Roof Rack For 2013 Audi Q7


I am looking for an overall height from roof to top of crossbar for a Thule Wing Bar Evo setup for a 2013 Audi Q7 to verify if that setup with a Thule Alpine box will fit in my garage. I see a dimension of 12.25 above crossbar on the box but having trouble finding a dimension from roof to top of crossbar. The following were recommended by your system: TH711220 TH710601 TH186025 I am hoping to stay under 3.5 - 4 inches, are there other options that may be lower profile that I am not seeing or aware of?

About 3-1/2 - 4" will be added to the height of your 2013 Audi Q7's roof when using Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars Black - 47" # TH711220, Feet # TH710601, and Fit Kit # TH186025. This system attaches to your factory flush rails and provides a quiet aerodynamic crossbar setup with integrated t-slot channels on top for accessories. This is the lowest crossbar setup for your 2013 Audi Q7 with flush roof rails. I attached a demonstration video for you to check out.

If this is not low enough then your other option is to install a hitch-mounted cargo carrier like the Thule Transporter Combi Hitch Mounted Enclosed Cargo Carrier - Tilting # TH665C. Just make sure you have a class 2 1-1/4" receiver or a 2" receiver installed such as the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 13220. I attached a few demonstration videos for you to check out.
