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.
Thanks Paulus - for the amount of time I would use them, I think the Thule bars would be ok.
I take the point about the step ladder; during a recent hosepipe ban, the local carwash closed so i was cleaning the car myself - it went around for a few weeks with a mohican as i couldn't reach the middle bit!
