    Half roof rack for HSE (with glass roof)

    Hey guys,
    I really want to get a half roof rack, as I have a sunroof - but want to try and avoid covering my "moon roof".
    I've been searchign and searching, I've read every single post on here and haven't been able to come up with anything. I also want something very low profile, I cant stand the ones that stick up too high.

    Has anyone come accross anything, or am I going to have to cover my beautiful moon roof ?

    You have 2 choices, use a pair of bars or fit a rack that clears the sunroof. I adapted a steel 1800x1200mm universal rack and cut a rung out so the sunroof clears it, now going to adapt or make a full length rack as i now have full length rails.

    I quite like that one. Very classy.

    With a moon roof, throw the extra cash down and go Prospeed.... youíll have the lowest profile and your moon roof wonít be covered.

    Iím not sure, but may be worth a PM to see if DieselLSE still has one for sale.

    No, they've all been sold Tombie. I suppose the ProSpeed would be OK for a sunroof if you didn't fit the floors. But I don't think you would be able to tilt the sunroof.

    I have the front runner full length (noting this is not about the full length rack) and it's good apart from the wind noise. I was given it as part of the deal when I bought my car, but whilst the wind noise isn't too bad, I would 'choose' to go with the silent pro speed rack if buying one now.
