After Market Roof Racks

Hello,

Does anyone have experience with after market roof racks, such as Thule, for the Disco 5?

Not sure how your search is going, but I've had a Frontrunner 'Slimline 2' on for a few months and am happy with it. Fitment and quality are both very good and it seems versatile enough for just about anything - including a rooftop tent.

I'm in the US, but I assume they're available across the pond.

Here's mine without any of the accessories.

I have just ordered the Modula Black Ovalbar roof rack.
I had a Thule a Wingbar Edge previously on my 2017 MY X3 and they were very good quality but they are 80mm deep x 27mm high, which the roof box only just gripped.
The Modula ones I hope are a slightly lower profile and they have passed the same tests as Thule and still come with a 3 year guarantee. They are also £90 instead of £259 for the Thule.

Thanks, I ended up going with the Land Rover ones, because I was in a rush. They are fine, except they only come in the brushed aluminum colour, which doesn't match my all black Discovery. :(
