Pros: looks, aerodynamics, halfords service
Cons: price
" This box is looks good and is plenty big enough for 5 or 6 sets on ski's. We have a 2 door hatchback and it doesn't look oversized on the car, We have just driven down to the alps and I was pleasantly surprised that I still got a decent mpg and no additional noise, so the aerodynamics must be pretty good, Does not restrict boot opening.

Pros: space, easy to install, easy to use
" It only took 48 hours for Halfords to deliver the roof box at my home address. It was safely protected in the big cardboard!
The space of this roof box is impressive. It's almost as if there is no limit. It is easy to install and use. Its double opening (from each side) is great too.
I surely recommend to spend the extra pounds and get yourself the Motion 800. "

" Delivery was very prompt. Box comes in a very flimsy but very large carboard box.
The roofbox is incredibly easy to fit. No tools needed.
Wind noise is noticable but acceptable.
Highy recommended. "

" Very happy owner and glad I went for the larger 800 version (900 was possibly too big even for our Volvo XC90). We were able to put an adult bike and a child's bike in the roof box once we took the seats and front wheel off. Not to mention helmets and an infant bike seat!
For the Volvo XC90 owners, I recommend getting the sports pack (or whatever Volvo call it) which puts the side board/rails on and the two necessary roof rack bars - both necessary additions. "

Pros: easy to fit, looks great, well made, plenty of room for luggage
" I spent a fair amount of time investigating which roof box to buy but in the end opted for this Thule roof box – it was definitely the right decision! I used it for the first time last week on our holiday and found it very easy to install using the ‘One Click’ system. The dual-sided opening is really useful for loading items and it can consume plenty of luggage - more than I expected! Best of all - I hardly noticed it was there once on the road with minimal wind noise on the motorways. Overall a great product! "
