Anybody got roof rails from LRPARTS.net?

Post by Dsexplorer » Tue Jun 08, 2021 12:03 pm

Hi All,

I was wondering if any members had bought the aftermarket roof rails from LRPARTS.net and could vouch for the quality?

If they're a decent aftermarket product and not cheap rubbish then they represent a great saving at £250 delivered over the cheapest quote so far for genuine rails at £430. I've seen some other eBay sellers recommended on old forum posts from 2017; however when checking their listing they state specifically that the rails aren't for a 7 seat model, although I didn't think there was any difference in the roof structure.

I never knew that picking roof rails would be such a hard decision!

Many thanks,
G

Purchased genuine ones from Matford LR, there was a shortage of one's for non panoramic roof but got some after 6 weeks and super simple fix. 8-)

Well I decided to take a leap of faith and ordered the aftermarket rails but without even going on the car I'm about to log a request to return them.

They initially looked fine, but on closer inspection there are flecks of paint missing on the rails out of the box which doesn't hold up much hope for how they'll look once a set of bars has been on and off them. The plastic ends of the rails also aren't screwed on properly and the plastic is of poor quality.

Hoping to order a genuine set from Duckworths!

Got my genuine ones from Duckworths. Keen price, they fitted well and been really useful. 12 months of hard use and still going strong, think decking, furniture, pipes and conduit - oh and the boat a few times

To be fair to LRParts they've been brilliant with arranging the return of the aftermarket rails - absolutely no problems.

Picked up some genuine rails from Duckworths for £425 which is pretty good against RRP. I sold it to the wife that unlike the old workhorse D3 we had, the DS is still relatively new and in the grand scheme of the cost of the car it's not worth ruining the looks with non-genuine parts for the sake of a few hundred quid... not sure she's convinced. :)

I bought my roof bars off an Ebay seller for just over £100.

They're decent copies and had zero issues with them
