Roof rails or no rails

With my new Evoque going into build in 10 days time I'm wondering whether or not to opt for roof rails. The new car will have a Santorini contrast roof so they will be less obvious than on the last, Fuji white, Evoque. I have a roof box, cross bars, cycle rack and board carrier from previous Land Rovers I have owned all sitting gathering dust in my garage that I can use.

So would Zanzibar with Santorini Contrast Roof with black rails work?

Yes deffinately. I think all these type cars look finished off with them fitted. Even if you don't like them have em fitted as they give you something to grag hold of to get up & clean the roof.

I have them on my Evoque and think they look great even though I never use them for real. Not so on my forthcoming RRS where I will pass.

Evoque was great, now in an RRS SVR

Well I had them on my all Fuji car and they look even better with a contrast roof.
