LIDL. From last Sunday.
I know when they did them a year or so ago they did NOT fir the Yeti. Skoda seem to have a different section from most other makes. Be prepared to return them!

As I mentioned above, these fit the kodiaq perfectly. Ideal for occasional use takes 2 minutes to fit and remove.

I have searched plenty of topics but haven't found anyone that has a set of roof bars that still allow the panoramic roof to open unimpeded. I know on my Superb II Estate I researched to death until I found a set of Atera Signo RT Aero 122cm roof bars that worked a treat however I got rid of these when I sold the Superb.

The Thule buyers guide recommends a 775 foot pack which I am concerned will be too low down compared to the 757 (similar style to the Atera) to open the roof.

Anybody out there with the Thule 775 footpacks and the pano roof?

I have installed the Thule 775 and wingbars today and took some photos of the pano roof.
There is more than enough room underneath the bars for the glass. The 775 system is wide apart and does not cover/overlap the panoramic window. When the pano window is fully opened, the front mesh reaches approximately the height of the bottom part of the bar - I guess if you have the roof box that low, it will rest on it.

Thanks! That is excellent work. Good point on the mesh. Think I will have to just take a risk and return if not quite a fit.

Cheers,

I'm pretty sure no roof bars that attach to the cars original rails are going to go anywhere near the panoramic roof, based on the pics above my cheap set would be miles clear (if I had the sunroof, which I dont!)
