Thanx. Give Ben a call @ Prospeed.

Must say it's a real quality bit of kit, fairly quiet as well - didn't notice it was on. Used it for the first time today...😃

Looks Cool

Have you tried it with the sun roof open fully, does it reduce the buffeting?

The buffeting noise is still there, just different.

I'm quite impressed that you really don't notice that you have the rack on; and that it fits with the OEM ladder in place. Maybe a slight difference in mpg. Looks aesthetically good...

Interesting you noticed a mpg drop. When I had just the rack on, I didn’t notice anything. I thought I noticed a slight drop when I put the two rear floor sections in, but could have been other feactors!

The drop was in the region of 1-2mpg, so nothing really and very hard to calculate accuraetly!

I have a D3 with Mk2 rack and two rear floor sections, can't say I've noticed a drop in MPG Thumbs Up

The Prospeed folk fitted a rack with 6 floor plates to my D4 when it was new, it's top kit!
However, you certainly notice it is there in terms of the buffetting noise it creates, especially in cross winds.

2007 RRS TDV8 HSE, some blue

I said maybe a slight drop Rob. We averaged 31mpg to Prospeed's premises (just over 200 miles) & 29.6 on the way back. However, there was rain on the return journey & I can't remember anybody passing us...😉 So, probaby the same...
