    I'd get a VX one that connects into the existing roof points. Got mine off ebay for about £50 all in.

    I 2nd the Thule recomendation, I have the original style thule bars and feet, well worth the money, and if you ever change the car all you need to do is get new feet to match your new car.

    They are a doddle to fit to the existing mounting points, leave no marks or scratches on the car, and are lockable so no toe-rag can nick yout roofrack.

    I bought a VX one, with what looks like copies of Aero bars, they whistle at anything above 60. Had cheap Halfords bars on my Subaru much quieter despite being rectangular with no aero shaping. I realise it might be difficult but try and get a ride in car with them fitted and go down a motorway to see what you think.
