2008 Astra XR
Default Roof Rack

I'm looking to try and get a roof rack that will work on my XR coupe. I just need a set of cross rails for now and the proper mounts. Has anyone had any luck/success obtaining rails that fit on the three door?

I have them on mine, Thule makes the 'fit kit' and standard square 50" bars that I had on my '97 SL2. Works great for with the 'Bigmouth' bike attachment.

PN#3025 for the rail kit adapters.

I have the Thule Aero Blade Edge. I believe the fit kit u need is the 3025. Fits good, I bought them off a guy who posted forever ago. I will submit a picture if I find one. Also if you live in an area where it gets cold, I would recommend the wind fairing to go with it. My car had a horrible howling sound from the space between my roof and bars.

Edit: This is a picture of my shark fin antenna i got. But you can see the roof rack there. It came silver, but I painted it black with spray paint.

Be mindful when installing if you do get these. On the outside of the car in the channel there is a female hole that the screws thread into. And on the inside of the car, under the headliner there is another fat screw which hold the mount into place. When installing mine, the screw actually came out and I ended up having to take my headliner down to get the screw back into place.
