Interestingly enough, the ones on my '87 wagon(parts) are in much better shape than the ones on my '91 200q20v which has about the same mileage as yours, so those are what I'll be using.  So try to source from an older avant with rood rack.

What are other avant owners doing when plagued with corrosion and peeling of the 
chrome plating on the horizontal tubes, 4 of them, making up the roof rack? The 
roof mounts, 6 of them, are OK so far; but the tubes are in bad shape from the 
plating peeling and flaking off, leaving visible rust spots. 

Has anyone looked at used auto parts / salvage sources with any success?
