    Hi everyone just acquired a 2003 HR-V and I have couple of questions?

    It has built in roof rails, which have covers you can remove. However, all the roof bars I can find are designed to "grip" around rails, not bolt on? Can anyone advise of a reasonably priced set of bars?

    Also, it is a 1600 "VTEC" - is this the more powerfull engine??

    many thanks

    Think we had a thread previously about a bike rack which may have had reference to roof bars I'll have a look and see. I don't have roof bars on mine no need for them but ill mooch about on the net and see if I can find anything for you.

    There is a Honda dealer in Belgium called Theys who have a set of genuine Honda HR-V bars in stock. I've bought from him in the past so I know he does international shipping, but he isn't cheap.

    What did you go for in the end.

    You should post your HR-V in the garage section for us all to see.

    Just fitted the roof bars, were great value and it took 30 mins to fit them. Simples! Thanks all, saved me some money!

    You pop the covers off, there are two tapped holes which you fix the mounting plates to, then bolt the roof bars to the plates, it really is simple.
