    I've got a cheap Mont Blanc 450 litre job, it was 85 delivered from somewhere on the net, can't remember where. Anyway the point is, any box will do as most have different mounting holes to sit different spacings between bars - or its easy to drill new holes to suit your bar spacing.

    Its the roof bars that are critical as they have to exactly fit the mounting points. Mine are Altea and are excellent quality. The good thing is you can take them on or off in about 90 seconds.

    yes, fraid so, lose about 3 mpg and its noisy, but not excessive, lets face it, you only use it for the journey to holiday/camp etc.

    When you get there thewhole bars and box combo comes off as one in 90 seconds - Altea roof bars have an excellent mechanism hat undoes with a key. So while your running around on holiday, the box is off...... When you go home again put the box back on in 90 seconds!!
