    I have a pair of basic Thule 760 square steel bars, and the 753 rapid system

    https://www.thule.com/en-gb/gb/buyer...ks&q=StSdGc8vv

    and they test fitted OK on mine last autumn.

    If you click on 'View details', the 'Kit' user manual shows the fitting method.

    There is a previous thread on roof bars at,

    Because not many owners need to carry large items on the roof, they are a rare sight on any car these days.

    I have never owned a roof rack or any roof bars and probably never will lol

    Not here in North West England when it chucks it down and kayakers start hunting white water in packs.

    Four or more brightly coloured kayaks on the roof of a fully loaded oncoming car, likely driven by a under 25 year old in a hurry, acts as a good warning sign around here that you may well encounter a few more on the next few bends in the road trying their best to keep up.
