Roof bar recommendations

Will be looking to get the feet and cross bars to fit the standard short roof bars on my D4 (when I get it).

Any recommendations on what to get? i.e. what feet pack, bars etc. I'll be carrying a couple of kayaks and/or a roofbox so needs to be able to hold about 45 - 60 kilos weight.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts on this.

I use whispbars, had them for a few years, only have to buy new feet to swap them from my audi A6 to the discovery. £30 for new feet.

They are quiet too.

You can use the standard LR bars, often some for sale on here. I had a Thule aerobar already (with feet packs that fitted previous car), I just sold the old packs and bought the right packs for the D4. Very sturdy, carrying roof box and a bike.

Thanks people. I have some existing Thule bars (not aero) I could use for now. Can someone identify the Thule foot pack I will need and does it allow for changing the bars at a later time to the aero bars?

Cheers for all your help.

Look on either Thule website or I have used roofbox.co.UK before, to check the fittings required, usually two codes required, one for the bar connections and another for the rubber feet. I imagine the fitting to the bar is universal, but again, website should confirm.

Don't buy LR ebay copies - buy LR new or second hand - world of difference in quality. Thumbs Up

Just be wary of what you will be carrying and the width need to fit them on the bars.
At the minute I am using the genuine LR bars but due to their design the useable width of track is compromised. I managed to fit 4 Thule 591 bike racks on but it’s extremely tight and the bikes are very close if not touching each other!
At some point I’ll probably upgrade to the Thule bars with the extra width as the bars go over the feet.
Like these...
