Hi Barnitron, if you want the OEM look, then you need to bite the bullet and go Renault , other wise both Thule and Atera make high quality bars with multi optional feet kits, so when you change your car all you need to do providing the bars are the correct length is change the foot/fitting kit, usually about 20 or so.

Ive owned both Thule and Atera over the years and there is not much between them .. Thule are easier to get a hold of and have a bigger range, and Atera if anything have the slight edge over quality but there is not much in it.

(IMHO forget the classic square bars from both as they dont take as much weight as the aero ones and are only marginally cheaper.)

Both companies have web sites in english and UK dealers ... pays your money takes your choice

Halfords ... take other advice, but by all means purchase from them but you'll get a better deal elsewhere.

Hope it helps

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
