MINI Icon Hot Choc Clubman Roof stuff - 13th February 2017, 07:13 PM

Hello. I'm picking up a 2015 Clubman Cooper this week and as it has a normal roof I'm going to need bars and a roof box. We were tempted my the genuine roof box but I'm told it won't fit on 3rd party (Thule) bars; any comments? Plus as I've not got the car yet, I don't know the length of the roof to select a suitable roof box. Can anyone measure their roof and/or recommend a box for it? Many thanks. Simon.

I had the old clubman with roof rails.
I bought a set of menabo roof bars with are universal and when tightening they clamp into the bars. This was better in my opinion as I could put the bars where ever I wanted

MINI Icon Hot Choc Clubman Roof bars - 21st February 2017, 10:58 PM

Evening. I've got the car now (love it) but can't find an absolute definitive "these bars will fit your car simon". Has anyone put roof bars on an F54 normal roof (no roof rails) Clubman? A number of websites suggest a specific Thule configuration but Thule themselves say they don't do them. Hmmmmm. I'm guessing retro-fitting roof rails would be silly and silly money. Any thoughts anyone?
