V40 Roof Bars

I have for sale a set of bespoke Volvo V40 roof bars no longer required. These are the genuine Volvo bars and look and work a treat. They have the 'T' track which gives flexibility for attachments. I have used them solely for a cycle carrier (Thule) which is a perfect match. The bars can be left on the car and the aerodynamic design ensures little or no extra wind noise. (Also makes it easier to find in the supermarket car park!)


The bars were in the region of £159 new and I am looking for £100. I am happy to deliver within a reasonable distance of Lincoln or else carriage can be arranged.
Please pm me for more details.

Sorry to bump this. Was looking at getting some roof bars (missed this bargain). Any way, how easy are they to fit? Are the bars limited to a certain size of box? Looking at getting a box that could carry a family sized suit case. Never had one on any car I have driven. So I am a virgin when it comes to this kind of thing.

Thanks
Kevin

Volvo bars for the V40 are the best. Made by thule (Volvo branded) easy to fit and well made.

Iirc most roof boxes will fit - you can find online the spacing between the bars and then relate that to the spec of the roof box. When I did this a while back most seemed to fit. There is a roof box thread on this forum somewhere if you search.

As mentioned the bars are bespoke and good. Fairly easy to fit and remove and they only require one spanner which is supplied with the kit.
I have a roof box which I am willing to part with which was only used twice. I think it is also a Thule but am not sure of this. If you are anywhere near Lincoln you could come and have a look at it.
