    Default Roof Bars and box

    Having now got extensions to my family I'm fast finding that I have to pack everything including the kitchen sink! I'm liking the idea of a roof rack and box, but dont want to fork out the Vx prices.

    I've got a Vec C 06 estate with the little flaps that pull out for the bars to fit into.Has anyone got any suggestions on any and where to get them? Thanks in advance.

    I've had a look on ebay and they seem pretty expensive, people wanting 200 squiddlies for a second hand box. Haven't looked at Halfords, but heard bad things in the past about their roof bars. Also I'm not certain which ones I want too if Im honest

    I used a local car parts shop called A1 Autos. I paid £174.99 for a large long box and roof bars brand new. Used it for first time other week. Fitted in a pram big holdall full of clothes and my bike gear (helmet 1 pc suit, boots jacket and trousers!!!) So my advice is try a local dealer as Halfords anted £240 for a box he same size as mine

    Have only just started looking for a box in last week, can anyone tell me what the difference is between integrated railing, roof railing and fixpoint. I am guessing mine is fixpoint as there are the little flaps that flip up but just want to make sure I order the right ones.

    Following advice from someone on here I am looking at www.roofracks.co.uk and got a quote for £122.85 plus delivery. Is that any good? Also can I then put any make roofbox up there? Thanks

    Yes m8 yours will be fixed point if you have the flappy things. As far as roof bars are concerned wait till end of the week and I may have a set for sale as i lost the keys for my thule ones 1 day before I went for hols and had to buy another set. Just have to wait for pay day to become a full member and order a new set of keys from Thule lol.
