just been into halfords to see the exodus one in the flesh and i must admit it does look nice and looks more aerodynamic than the karrite one and looks of good quality

I have Exodus and its a fab box

Hi i bought an Exodus 470l last summer and although i think its a great box, the quick fit system didnt quite fit my bars as they were too big , not only that but they take up a lot of room inside the box. I kept the box as its really good but ended up getting a U bolt system for £10 from Halfords anyway and it works far better. Id probably get the cheaper box with the U bolt system as it will save u some money and is just as good

My problem with the U bolt type is reaching the nuts inside the box, if you have a fairly high or wide car the nuts can be very difficult to get to on the hinged side of the box (well they are on mine)
