I went for the Thule bars as they are flat for the full width of the car, I chose the rectangular section as it meant that i could attach stuff to them easier. Both bars can be removed in a minute or so meaning that your fuel consumption will not affected...but leaving the base blocks in position looks a bit sad. The only gripe is that the fitting into the T slot is a bit fiddly and the "nuts" will work loose if they are not careully positioned.

All I need now is a collapsable step ladder (or box) to reach the roof.
