Just make sure they include the Torx Key to tighten the bars or you will have to buy a T40 Torx Bit. (i speak from experience here )
I have a similar dilemma with my daughters 1998 Scenic. It has the continuous rubber strip and at first glance I cannot see how the authentic Renault roof bars (which we have purchased from e-bay) attach. I am heartened by the reply from 'Free Spirit' who says that they will fit . If you are able could you let me know how you attach them. Will the 'lug' on the bar fit into a bracket when the rubber strip is removed? Or do you have to cut a section out of the rubber strip?
