Heads up - available from Thursday 8th May.

I bought a pair of these last year and they're great for the price. If you're very worried about security, the lock is basic and just covers the hole you put the allen key in to adjust the caliper.

- Max. roof width (mm): 1070
- Max. rail width (mm): 58

Yeah, sorry. Does say for cars with roof rails in description.

More than happy to buy Lidl stuff, by and large, but the quality of a lot of their cycle and car equipment has proved distinctly iffy after a fairly short time, and the warranty's of limited value by the time you've taken the return postage to the manufacturer into account.

Bought a pair of these a couple of years ago to fit on a Mazda 5, fantastic quality for the price

Whilst I haven't seen then in person yet, these seem to be identical to the ones they have been selling for the last few years. Bought mine last year and have been perfect - even survived being blown in to next door's garden when the roof box they were attached to, along with the lid of the Keter store they were sitting on, took the brunt of the storms a few months back!

Will fit my runaround Lacetti Estate fine, great for hauling larger antiques around, great.

In law your contract is with the retailer. Just stand your ground if they try that nonsense. It's one of the few downsides of shopping for durables at Lidl and Aldi but the latter were very helpful once I explained the law to them. I had a dripping Aldi tap and the charming (really) regional manager tracked down several spares at other stores and delivered them to me with their apologies. Can't promise they'll do the same again but I was impressed! The replacement taps (I only needed the cartridge inside) have now been working without issue for six years; they were £13 vs £100 for similar Bathstore ones which aren't quite as good. I think you can shop at Aldi and Lidl with confidence.

Shame only for vehicles with rails, I've just been looking to get roof bars and these would have done me apart from the rails issue

Does anyone know if these are suitable for a 2007 Audio A3 with silver rails on the roof?

These are the cars it will fit. http://www.flli-menabo.it/mnb_upload/4317__lista_app_barretetto.pdf
This one I would say is the Brio. So it won't fit 3 series touring. Regarding the A3 if it has roof rails that have been added, then possibly. If it has "lips" from factory then no...

Been waiting for these as they will fit my new Dacia Sandero Stepway :-)

Wish they would sell the XL version for my BMW X5, been waiting for ages for these to come up for sale.

Supposedly from a different manufacturer but I suspect they have just been re-branded.

I think they fit the older Zafira (mk I) - not sure about later versions. The key thing is the roof rails must be raised for the ends to clamp around.

Take a look at the video link provided by logindetails as it should give you the answer:

I just realised you need to look under Opel on the linked PDF. As I thought, only compatible with Zafira mark 1 (99-04).

These ones are the standard "Brio" on the list.

Nice find. Got a set yesterday. Fit a Volvo V50. Its not Thule quality (but then its not the price either).

The only bad thing was the Allan key is badly made and did not sit in the bolt heads properly. I think the hex section is ok but was distorted when it was cut off. So you could grind it down. I used my own set and it was fine.

I may get a spare T handle 5mm off the tinterweb for it.

Thanks OP

Hi guys

I also have a vauxhall zafira mk2 and interested in buying these as they look great value for us going camping. Just found which look like the same ones on ebay here:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VAUXHALL-ZAFIRA-ALUMINIUM-AERO-DYNAMIC-ROOF-BARS-FOR-SIDE-RAILS-/370837439538?pt=UK_Car_Accessories_Touring_Travel&fits=Plat_Gen%3AMK+II%7CModel%3AZafira&hash=item5657a24432

These are almost double on ebay so seems like its worth a pun as just done the compatibility test on the listing and says they are compatible. Hope this helps.

Just got mine, last ones in store

Why is this deal expired?
I just bought a pair from Lidl in Cricklewood.
There were another 10 left if anyone is interested.

I think I set it to expire today when I posted it, as they usually sell out and then the next specials come out on Monday as well.

Glad it helped some.
