Hi, I’m after a set of roof bars for a 2013 Sportback.

I have looked on here and on eBay, but am confused as to what will fit my car.

I just want a cheap set of roof bars, can anyone point me in the direction of something applicable?

Thanks

Does your car have roofrails ? As that makes all the difference.

Sure. No it has a normal roof.

What can you suggest?

+1 for Thule. Have the Wingbar Edge bars on mine (fitted to roof bars, but with a different fitting pack they can go on a standard Sportback as well). Not sure where you are based, but if up North then I can recommend The Journey Centre - if you pop in and see them FTF they’ll sort you out and will fit for you. Great customer service and good prices (I’m not on commission!)

Take a note of the Part Numbers from RoofRacks and then see the price difference on eBay/Gumtree etc. (I've offloaded 2 different sets of Thule over the years as/when make/model of car has changed)

Maybe even end up buying the footpack (which is the bit that adapts the fittings for your car) and the other parts from different sellers - but ideally buy as one/from a like for like car as you know they fit etc.

You'll need:

Double check as you said 2013

Foot Pack 754,
Fitting Kit 1708,

Then Choose one of the following RoofBars

SquareBars 769 (127 cm),
WingBars 969 (127 cm),
WingBars Black 969B (127 cm)

Thanks for the assist everyone - I'll definitely try and build up a kit using used parts.
