Would anyone know the width of the Thule wing bars ?

Just checking if my top box fixings will be wide enough - thanks

If you mean across the width of the car, see here...
"961"
… from 108 to 150cm.

Finally ordered the thule roof bar set, Karls info was the reason for choosing thule, the full kit was £189 which seems expensive but as Karl said, spares are easily got should the need arise, looking for kayak holder now, any ideas chaps?

The above photo is my assembly so far! I assume I put the whole assembly on the roof rails, center everything up and then tighten the central Allen screw to lock all in place? Hope that's correct, apologies for photo before this, I struggle with everything. Thanks

Yes offer it all up to the roof rails and centralise, try and tighten each allen key a few turns at a time to prevent it pulling offset.
If you need any pictures of them attatched i should be home in an hour (been out in the vitara all day but typically out in the ignis now)

Are these pictures any good to compare the roof bars?

Sorry to be a pain Karl but could you post photo of your vitara roof bars with car in pic to see where abouts you've put them on the rail? I mean distance from front and back please.

Not a problem Mr G, lots of pictures here with my Thule bars on my SZ5 or I can get you more specific pictures on my S in the morning?

(scroll down half a dozen pictures or so.....)
