Hey, Just got my hands on one of the comfiest drives I have ever had, smooth with lots of power as been previously mapped. MPG amazing. I've come from a 1.8 sri corsa returning 23mpg.

I've just got into building things out of wood. Unfortunately the boot although MASSIVE, the entrance is too small to fit bits of wood I need into the car. Left me wondering about a roof rack. But for a roof rack I need a roof rail. However, the internet it very over saturated with roof racks that it is impossible to find the roof rails for my car.

I am coming to you as a new owner and new to this forum for help!!

Also anything I should know about these cars? My ones done 141k miles. :D

Happy driving :D

They do not make side rails for the saloon like that of an estate car. You need the roof rack cross bars "base carrier bars" that mount to the drip rails over each door. Any good aftermarket brand will offer a foot and cross-bar package for your car. Thule, Yakima, Rhino rack, etc.

Of note: there are white triangular arrows on the underside of the drip edge that mark where the rails should be installed. Lean way down and look up (or ask a toddler).
