Clubman Roof Bars

Can anyone give me some advice on roof bars on a clubman?

Our clubman is blue all over without the silver or black roof. It is my understanding that I need to drill the roof and fit coloured caps which only come in black or silver?

So firstly how badly could I screw up my car if i got the fitting wrong?

Secondly is the car going to look daft with the cover caps when the bars aren't in place?

Thanks

It shouldn't be that expensive to get the caps painted to match the roof.

I take it you didnt spec the roof rails at the factory? If so the bars go straight on top...

Secondhand so didn't have roof rails I'm afraid.

I'm told you can get a kit which just fits to the gutters?

There are some issues with the gutter mounts with heavier loads. That was why I went with roof rails.

Check my post in the North American Motoring Clubman forum. Sorry I can't post links yet
