    We are planning trip to Europe and need lots of storage. We already have thule atlantis roof box, now we need some rails/racks to fit it.
    Car comes without rails. Ideally would like to get original rails.
    Any ideas where to start?

    Hard to get these bits from dealers here for your car, but speak to Honda S-MX Service and Parts in Kent they deal with S-MX primarily but they may have contacts in JDM land.

    Your best bet is to use the import shipping service Buyee and browse Yahoo Auction Japan (their equivalent to ebay) for some.

    There were several listed in the Elysion options book.

    Did you see the ones that don't need drilling £50? I bought them, such a crap i don't have words, wasted £50.
    Now trying to source originals, but the guy is not responding :Frown:

    No they were over £100 however didnt look into how they fitted. Off topic but who do you use for insuring your car and roughly how much? finding it hard to find an insurer at the moment for a reasonable price

    I see, I'm struggling to get the ones that fit.
    I'm using direct line and for me it's £420 comp with no claims protected and over 9 years ncd

    right, I got the rails eventually...
    had to go for original ones that cost £370 + £70 import duty tax...
    expensive, but when fitted well worth it, fitted in under 20mins and looks great and feels really solid

    With regards to insurance, Adrian Flux wouldn't insure my Odyssey and were really unhelpful despite them advertising as import insurance specialists. Went with Mark Richard Insurance. Really competitive (actually cost me less than my 1.9 Passat Estate).

    Hi,
    I'm really surprised we could help. We have a number of specialist import schemes. Did we say why we could help?
    Regards,
    Dan.

    To be honest, the two people I spoke to were really unhelpful, just said we can't find anyone who will insure your car. When I asked why they just said don't know. I was really surprised and unhappy as I have always heard good things about Adrian Flux and couldn't understand as they advertised as import insurance specialists.

    Hi - Recently purchased a 2.4V Auto Elysion to replace a well worn Alhambra.

    So far, no regrets.

    Struggling to find somewhere that sells

    a) tow bar. Witter and Towsure say they don't have them.
    b) roof rails.

    Tried Yahoo Auction Japan as suggested but no luck so far, unless I am doing something wrong.

    Any help or guidance appreciated as the best place to get purchase them.

    Cheers.

    I looked around for the tow bar on Japanese owners sites but couldn’t find any info. May need to have something custom fitted?
