Sorry - loads of questions but here's another one.

Anyone use a box? I've heard Thule are decent, looking for anything that people have tried so I know will work.

What bars do you use also?

Hi,

Have you got the roof rails installed? You'll need those to fit any of the cross bars too first of all.

I've got the Fiat cross bars for mine, basically did a deal when we bought the car. I'm sure they probably are made by Thule (or similar) and just badged as 500 as they look remarkably similar to Thule fixings I've used in the past.

For a roof box I bought one in Halfords via their flash sale last year, it's their own model but looks smart and has survived being kept outside over the last year or so.

Thule are the top level but you will pay top dollar for them, I'd suggest a wander around your local Halfords or other retailer and see what looks good to you.

Just remember you need the rails, I don't believe there are any other methods for fitting cross bars to the 500X.

The other thing to bear in mind is weight and space - my roof box is full length which means it can be longer but lower than the shorter boxes.

I've got about the same CL space in the roof box as the boot BUT the weight limit on the roof is 50kg max - remember that includes the weight of the rails and box itself.
