    Im after a set of roof bars for my avant, what do other folks run? any pics? and any recomendations? as im unsure if to pay the extra for gen or if its not worth it (I dont want the bars to be damaged like some cheap ones can do when they are clamped up,)

    also they need to be lockable, to try and stop them being knicked

    cheers

    Karl.

    go genuine every time as the width is different for the front bar and the back bar, they are also although not lockable they are difficult to put on/take off.
    They are expensive but worth the extra

    I picked mine up on ebay for less that £50 - that was cheap but they are about. Thule is another viable alternative, OEM quality and I think they are lockable too.
