    Can I use a thule Wingbar Edge on a touran with panoramic roof?

    Hi peeps, done loads of research and cannot find my answer, hopefully you can help?
    We pick up our new car tomorrow (2016 Touran 1.6 TDI with panoramic roof and raised roof rails) and go on holiday on Friday to the lakes and need roof bars to transport bikes (I already have bike racks).

    I have been on thules website and they say that unless stated these bars can be used on our car but then elsewhere they have a generic get out clause basically saying you may not be able to use sunroofs and antennas with bars fitted but gives no details of which cars and models?!
    If they can't, anyone have any suggestions for an alternative low profile set of bars.

    Thanks ��

    First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

    Your car spec says 0, only what I've added from this post.

    Oh wow I didn't realise I had to introduce myself somewhere else and then ask a question? This is new territory for me and I never realised there was a whole etiquette.
    I have really struggled to find an answer to my question through research on the Internet and thought enthusiasts with experience may be willing to help?! The reality is I won't be regularly contributing because my car is not a hobby or passion, just something really practical to enable me to do stuff with my family. If that precludes me from asking a question then I clearly came to the wrong place.
    Is anyone else willing to help? I ordered the bars and they are too low to use with the sunroof, so I'll be sending them back and having to purchase something else

    Well if you can't make a simple intro and you have Goggled your problem without success I can delete your profile if you don't want to stop with this good VW forum.

    It is good etiquette to make an intro on a forum. The biggest thing that pisses me of is you post good replies and the OP never bothers to reply if that worked or not. Forums are there to discuss problems not to post and never reply. We are not hear for our health but to help members out with probllems

    Its your choice, post what your going to do?

    Why would I now want to engage with someone who has been so welcoming and helpful?
    I will find my answer elsewhere, thanks for nothing
