And there goes the roof bars !!! ;)

Post by Supracer » Thu Feb 09, 2017 3:56 pm

I really didn't like the roof bars because I always thought they are mostly for old people and makes the car look taller which shouldn't be. So what do you think?

I think the roof bars add to the rugged look of the car, but each to their own. Doesn't it leave unsightly holes where the fixings were?

It wasn't an option.... There was no option for panoramic roof, no option for hi-fi upgrade, 3 colour choice, no option for with/without roof bars/, no option for 16 or 17 inch wheels, nothing!! Everything comes standard and you got no choice but just to take it like that

I like it without. How many of us will ever use the roof bars, plus to carry most things you still have to buy the very expensive cross bars

True and if you didnt want them its good we got the option to not have them. Shame Israel dont get that - I wonder why?
Personally I like the roof bars as for me they really fit the sculpted style of the car. Plus if I ever do have to carry something on the roof I know all I have to buy are the crossbars, and not have to fork out for the roof rails too.

Final reason - if ever someone steals my car and I have to jump off a motorway bridge onto the roof to catch them, I can be confident of having something to hold onto. Hopefully Im not the only one to cleverly think these things through ;)

It's quite weird what you are saying...
7 colors was available since the sell in Israel started: white, black, yellow, red, purple, silver, gray, and turquoise from mid 2016.
For example, I asked if there is a way to order it with different air bumps and the importer agreed, but it takes 3 months waiting because the specifications.
They are open minded, all you had to do is ask and being patient.
Because the method of car importing in Israel the importers keep in stock some common combinations and the manufacturers sometimes even set what will be the trim levels for the country.
