    Yep,

    They are the factory pug racks (their pretty much the same spec as the thule brand racks)

    Dont make the 180 look good though .....the racks are strangly high compared to the roof line

    I inquired about the rola racks , but the pads have to be drilled to the roog, which is somehing I wasn't keen on .Are yours easy to remove?

    Hahaha,

    I'm really biting my tongue here. This has been a source of much discussion on 206Gti.net

    The long and short of it is, as Qui says, they don't look so good

    No drilling required if you go the Thule/Peugeot

    you just need a mate to help you get them on and off though...a bit tricky to say the least

    I've used Rola and Thule racks over the years and the Thule ones are much more superior. They're easy to get on and the add ons (bike racks mainly) are so much easier to fit and to put a bike on.

    If you get the aero bars, that don't look too bad... Just ensure that your roof is clean before fitting them and don't leave them on all of the time.

    Agreed, but I guess if you have a kayak or ski's to transport, practicality rules over looks ...

    Well said,

    If I wanted them I'd get them (especially if there is no drilling, bleeding, weeping or nashing of teeth involved). I was just referring to some previous discussions on the subject.
