    Default Roof Racks/Bars - Very confusing

    Hi Guys

    Need some help! I want to save some money by cleaning out guttering and sorting the roof out at home. So I need to get the ladders on the Siggy.

    I don't think I am an idiot (yet to be proven) but what the hell do I need to attach bars and what bars do I need. I have no rails on the car just the entry points in the roof.

    Halfords website isnít the most obvious (again this could be due to unproven stupidity)

    Can anyone help?

    Go into Halfords and buy their own brand kit (think its D) for the Vectra C with fixed points.

    Its £99 for the full roof bars and fitting kit.

    If you look under Signum in their book its not listed as a full kit, but i can confirm it will fit, i know i did it!

    Buy the same Thule system and you are looking at around £150 by the time you have added the bars and 2 fitting kits!


    Other option is e-bay and look for Vectra roof rack with fixed or 'fixa' points - these work out around £80 plus p&p for new or £60 + p&p second hand

    i bought a halfords d kit out of my local paper for my old astra, now use on the vectra, paid £20 for them, so worth looking through the local classifieds first, but its useful to know what cars have same fitment as yours, as the astra ones were advertised as roofbars for something else!

    I have the vec estate, I think it is the same as the signum where roof bars are concerned.

    I got a set from the dealers, nice brushed aluminium cheaper than halfords own. They can be fitted and removed in minutes.

    Thule are nice, but you pay for them, but I did read somewhere that they make them for vauxhall anyway.

    Think I paid £96 inc V.A.T for mine
