    Does anybody know if these Roof bars from a 2006 accord tourer will fit my 2008 tourer?

    I doubt it as the clamps and the rood rail profile is slightly different between the 7th and 8th Generation , have you bought them or you looking it up on eBay?

    looking to purchase, e bay, looking on other roof rack sites they sell the same kits for the 2 models but these might not fit as they are Honda specific, not sure?!

    I'd reckon they would fit, they look like a fairly generic type for cars with roof rails, rubber coated feet, with clamps you wind in to grip the rails.

    Worth a go at that price. New Honda or Thule bars are expensive. I've heard Aldi also do reasonable lockable generic bars for £25.

    I bought a set of the roofbars Lidl were selling around christmas, well made and TUV approved, but despite stating they would fit an 08 Tourer they aren't long enough when fitted near the front of the roof rails - the roof rails aren't parallel. I've finally given up with them and bought a set of Thule bars that work a treat. It might be worth checking the length of the bars you are looking at on Ebay in case you experience the same problem.

    Well hope they fit as I have just won the Auction £51 all in which is pretty good as they were advertised as brand new, will let you know. In the picture it does look as if one bar is longer than the other so that'll be the front one!

    Excellent result, just shows you don't have to pay Thule rip off prices.
