Cheap roofrack for a 3 door car?
I've always had 5 door cars and been able to get cheap roofracks. Went to Halfords to price a roofrack for my new 3 door, and they said the only one that would fit a 3 door is a Thule at £175!

Renault, Toyota and Vauxhall. In every dealership the entire sales staff were clustered around a TV watching football. No-one even loo... 28 Jun 2010 18:25

I think you can only get it early if it's following on?? I don't have the reg document, as the previous owner sent it off, and it will take weeks for new one to come. Do... 27 Jun 2010 13:57
