United-Kingdom Roof Bars.

Hi All,

I'm finally fitting my roof bars on tomorrow. They're the Mini gutter fitting ones.

I've noticed that one has three raised sections on it's underside and the other doesn't..? Does it matter which goes to the front and back..?

Many thanks again troops.

Are these roof bars for a Countryman? I've seen on a US forum that the bar with three bumps goes at the front of a Countryman - apparently the bumps are there to reduce wind noise!

Ah, here it is: Wind noise with a roof rack See post #13
