    Default Roof Box

    I'm planning a trip to France and will need a roof box. Does anyone know how trivial/complicated this is? I've got a 2006 1.8 SRi.

    I've got an estate, same plate and an SRi. Got the genuine Vauxhall roof bars ~ took under 10 minutes to fit, and a Halfords half width Exodus roof box which takes another 10 minutes with the quick fittings. Could do it in half the time with two people, most of the time is spent walking round the car! Took mine to Holland, all very stable, very quiet.

    I got universal roof bars (the name escapes me at the mo) from my local Motor factor. I paid £170 for the bars, fittings and a massive roof box. Box takes 2 big holdalls, pram and small suit case. The rubber feet sit on top of the car with arms coming down and hooking into the door frame. Used it quite a few times now and had no probs at all. Certainly cheaper than Halfrauds or the Stealers. The same size box cost £215 from Halfrauds!!!! Bargain. I own the Hatch

    I've seen the bars for about £50 secondhand, and plenty of them.

    Boxes from £100 to £500+!!!

    I've go a Thule Atlantis, so simple to screw down on to the bars, worth the money!
