Real roof rails at last!!!
#1
I got a set of proper XTR heavy duty roof rails in factory black today, from a seller on ebay called "globalautosalvage" - well chuffed. Arrived next day, super well packed and in perfect condition. Also included the torx bolts which are like brand new, I'll be fitting those tomorrow. This is a vehicle dismantler on ebay, with 100% feedback - never seen that often - a bit like unicorn droppings.

Such a massive difference from the el cheapo ones you get online everywhere (tried a cheap set from NI and sent them back - pure rubbish), and since the real ones are near £300 new, I got a bargain with these for £99 delivered by DPD - superb! The quality of the original Citroen stuff is streets ahead of the knock-offs. Had to evict one earwig (bloody hate those, haven't seen one since I was a kid!) but otherwise, I'm now like a dog with 2 wotsits. 

The van will look way better with these fitted and along with the VTR alloys, so coming along nicely. 

Now have to get the interior carpeting finished if the weather allows.

Cheers buddy, will post some up as soon as they're on. Took me 7 months to find a used OEM set. Then 2 sets turned up on eBay at the same time. The other ones were silver and I prefer black so it was ideal.

Here it is, fitting the proper ones was a breeze. The cheap ones I tried before were a nightmare.

Thanks mate! It's coming along. There is another set for sale on eBay, in silver with the black end caps...could be yours for less than £90 if you get in there before they sell. (The guy is taking offers) OEM ones used, are like rocking horse poop. I looked at your van in your forum profile pic, very nice indeed. It would really suit a set of them. Plus they are rated to 75KG so totally functional. I plan to buy a
Set of cross bars for £40 and bingo, HD roof rack when required. Stylish accessory when not! (Just take the cross bars off again and store them)

Check them out here: (if you buy them, ask the guy to include the original bolts)
