Roof rails and cross bars

Post by Edarylh » Sat Jun 27, 2020 8:57 am

Hi I’m new to the forum. Can anyone suggest where I could source some roof bars and cross rails for my 2017 disco sport? I’m based in the Uk and looking for something that won’t break the bank (The LR ones seems to cost a small fortune)!

There is a difference on whether you have a Pano roof or not before anyone can give accurate advice.

Thanks for that advice, it’s a non panoramic roof model.

Hi - I am also looking to fit roof bars for a roof mounted bike rack, but do have a Pano roof on our 2018 Petrol HSE. What are the options for me please?

How about these?

I've recently gone through the mill with bits for our DS. After spending a small fortune buying it I didn't want to mess it up with poor quality extras, but equally I didn't want to spend £1000's just for the Landrover Logos.

I bought mud flaps, a Towbar, 13 pin electrics and a set of side steps. All after market, all for a fraction of genuine LR prices, and I can honestly say I'm very happy with all my purchases. All are excellent quality.

What I would say is ensure whatever you get is designed specifically for the Discovery Sport and fit the same way as OEM (and not some wierd generic fit). If so, in all likelihood it will be a direct copy of the LR one, without the logo and without the additional several hundred pound cost. Maybe some of the plastics won't be rubberised like the LR one would be but it's mostly visually and functionally irrelevant.
