Roof rails for L405

I am looking for some roof rails form my new (to me) L405. Has anyone fitted the Powerful.uk ones, and if so do they use standard cross bars Thumbs Up

I see they states these are not for vehicles with a panoramic/glass roof. What’s the reason behind that?

Had a message back from powerful saying their bars won't fit with pan roof models. I have found another seller on eBay that says theirs fit with pan roof or not and they are cheaper than the powerful ones

Please do let us know how you get on with them, would be good to find a low cost alternative to the LR original rails.

I have the Powerful ones fitted and have a pano roof - the quality of the bars is reasonable, if not amazing. I suspect the reason they say they are not suitable for fitting to pano roofs is because there is always a risk of the roof cracking and they don't want the risk of an argument that the glass broke because of the bars. Ultimately, the genuine bars are the same for both the pano and non-pano models, with the only difference being the trim strips. As the powerful ones are compatible with genuine roof bar trim strips, I concluded that they should work regardless of whether or not you have a pano roof.

I also fitted the genuine finishing strips, rather than drilling the original ones.

I only have one picture to hand of them fitted (and it's not a great one). However, I can get some more later:

Thanks Will, I have spoken to several people who have fitted powerful ones to pan roof models with no problem. Not sure of their reason for stating "not for panoramic roof models". After all I would say the majority of L405 had a pan roof Confused Paul

Finally got round to fitting my roof rails. Fairly straight forward job, took about an hour Thumbs Up . If anyone is doing this job one thing to check is that the brackets are secured tightly to the rail (they come pre fitted). Ask me how how i know Big Cry

This is number 1 priority job for me so I can transport my Oztent! - so thanks for sharing, they look great. Just to confirm, these are Powerful UK ones then? Did you drill the existing finisher strips? FFRR SDV8 Autobiography

No these were from eBay
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/182762605656?_t...%7Ciid%3A1
The seller confirmed these would fit fine with panoramic roof so if there are any issues I have proof, whereas powerful said that theirs didn't. Cannot see any difference.

The only issue is these come with no templates or instructions but I used powerful video as a guide and when it came to drilling the strips I just fitted the brackets and lay the strip on top and marked them. Then drilled them out with a 25mm drill Thumbs Up Paul

Yes, on the powerful vid they use a 22 but had to file it out. i did mine with a 25mm I got them spot on so didn't need to file them. Its only very thin aluminium so drills very easy Thumbs Up
Just ordered the cross bars too Thumbs Up Paul
