    Default Roof Bars Don't Fit!

    I'm confused.

    Just bought a pair of roof bars of e-bay for my Vectra C hatchback. The front one fits like a glove, the rear one appears to be about 1cm too short and I cannot get the rear feet in both roof pockets at the same time?

    Is the GSI wider than other Cs?

    Is there a different set of roof bars for the GSI?

    If so, does anyone want to by a standard set!?

    Ta

    Are these the VX bars you're talking about? If so, you do know that when you release the clamp on the end you can adjust the position of the end 'feet' - they'll slide and twist to let you get the right fitting.

    The GSi is no different to any other Vec C in terms of width etc. Same bars fit the Signum too. I'll measure mine for you in a tick.
