I have a MY17 hatch and have ordered roof bars (or an “aluminium roof base carrier” to use Vauxhall’s terminology); part number 13432540. I’ve just realised Vauxhall switched part numbers for roof bars half way through the MY17 production run, and have been informed I should have ordered part number 39125894 for my car. I just parked up next to a MY16 Astra and the roofs looked the same. Does anyone know if Vauxhall really redesigned the roofs so I’d need a different part number? Oddly the Official Vauxhall Accessories website only lists one part number for roof bars, the “older” 13432540. Thanks for any advice anyone can give!

The hatch back only has 4 mounting holes, These are hidden when the doors are closed, So what's changed or has the part number changed to get a price increase without stating. I use a non vauxhall type made by farad, It works by using the holes, With a dowel inserted rather than a screw, Fine for local use and good for 100 kg. But noisy empty. Half the price.
