Also have a think about what you want to use them for. I've had LR OEM for a long time, but they're not great for two kayaks on the roof or slightly wider loads where bars that are the width of the vehicle would be more useful. If you want them only for a roof box or narrower loads, OEM are excellent I think. Also look for the (often much cheaper) Range Rover Sport roof bars. They're slightly wider but can very easily be cut down. A few recent posts on this subject here.

I've got Rhino bars. sturdy enough. bought them from a member on here.

not driven at speed with them on so can't comment on noise.

only thing I don't like is the fiddlyness of bolting them down ... I'm sure there must be a quick-release mechanism that could be used.

I have Thule bars. I like the large range of options that you get to go with them. Makes them more universal and I can move them between my L322 and the Disc4 just by changing the feet. Rob

Plus One from me on the Rhino bars. Having had both those & the LR ones whilst the Rhino don't look as nice they are far more practical & aren't any noisier than the LR ones are speed in my opinion. (At least I couldn't hear them over all the other moans & groans Miss Moneypit used to make)

I have a set of these for sale if you are interested - they are in very good condition and come supplied with the t bar fitting kit. I’ve bought a Prospeed rack so I no longer need these.

£100 plus postage.
