In a word, yes, with some fettling.
Over on the Q3 UK forum there is a thread describing a how to.

Yes, if you are somewhat handy, you can modify the Q5 cross-bars to fit the Q3.
The rear Q5 bar fits the front of the Q3 with no mods.
The front Q5 bar is modified to fit the rear of the Q3 by grinding off 2 of the 3 locating "nubs" of one foot, and then the aluminum bar is shortened 4 inches, and 2 new holes drilled to remount the modified foot.


I am doing this now.

And no, the Gen-1 VW Tiguan bars do not fit a Q3, the roof rails are different.

I had an A5 & bought a roof rack for my kayaks, used one season. The car was totaled so I’m selling the rack. Do you know what other Audi’s it’s compatible with? Thanks
