Turkey 
Re: Roof rails etc...

Hi Sludge - My man!!

I also don't like to fork out for something I will only use a couple of times!! I haven't seen these cross bars in Turkey - but maybe I will look out for them now.

Don't know about the drag, but it will probably make more noise!!

Thanks

Steve

Re: Roof rails etc...

I would be very interested to know what you think of the roof rails as I have looked at those as well.

For info I bought the sun shades for my 08 Doblo and they have been great, although have been unable to fit the shades to the rear sliding windows as the new type Doblo has some padded trim on the door which the shade does not fit around.

Re: Roof rails etc...

Ho hum...still no bars,will be ringing D4x4 2mrw,they were s'posed to email me a DHL tracking no. as well...
As for the pikeys on here 20 aint bad for a set of bars surely? Especially considering what we are forced to shell out for the rails which ought to be factory fitted in the first place on a vehicle of this type,not that I'm about to expect Fiat to listen to us eh? Did look at all the aluminium bar options but steels better for my purpose and I don't mind clipping them on/off as required.
Will investigate the slider shades as soon as I get a chance Notts,certainly the weather for em just now anyway

Re: Roof rails etc...

Got your roof rails yet? Pleased with them?

I want to get some sort of roof bars before Whit week and am using your recommendation or not on these bars from Direct 4x4.

Re: Roof rails etc...

Sorry guys,life's a bit too hectic to get round to roof rails and forums just now,they did arrive,all very well packaged,very impressed with the quality of the rails and good fittings,did a quick eye up on the roof holes and they look ok,just need some more hours in the day to get round to it. The steel cross bars are not as pretty as the ally ones but functional for my purpose.
Obviously I can't fully recommend the rails til I fit them but they look the mutts nuts,will come back to you asap...

Re: Roof rails etc...

Got pics yet?

I'm wondering why the rails aren't manufactured in such a way so that they can be used as crossbars?
With my rails installed, the internal distance across the body is 42"
The length of rail showing between front & rear mount is... 42".

Why not design them so the lower half of the mount is fixed & the top half can swivel?
Simply unclip the rail from one mount & swivel through 90deg to clip into it's opposite partner (which will be free once you've unclipped the rail to swivel across).
