Do you mean roof-rails??? Can be seen on quite a few modern days hatch-backs specially.

no no.
roof-rails are not roof-pillars!
and they can't be bought from anywhere, as they are very much built into the body's cabin frame itself!

i heard about them a lot but still am not sure what they are and where they are found!

i guess the pillar (or rather "beam"!) whic connects both B-pillars via roof is roof-pillar.
if this is it, then in the same way there can be some more such pillars, one connecting both A-pilars and also one connecting both C-pillars, also in similar manner one for D-pillar too.

but i am not sure of this.
waiting for someone to clarify my doubt/query!

Default Re: What is A-pillar, B-pillar, C-pillar?

A response after 8 years, WOW

Waiting for a Dentist appointment, and reading through an old edition of Autotrack, in the snippets section, it was pointed out that the 6 pillars (A, B & C) and sometimes 8 (D in station wagons), collectively are called Roof Pillars.

Cheers
