Just wondering if anyone has, or knows if its possible (hard or easy) to swap out the roof bars for the black roof bars found on the 2013 J10's?

Don't know if it's the same (should imagine so) but I swopped the black roof bars on my old Volvo V50 for the later silver ones and it's just a case of undoing the retaining bolts (it was four at either ends) and replacing the rails with the newer ones then doing up the bolts again.

Dont know how hard but certainly possible as they are the same bars just black, they come on the 360 model only along with some other black interior trim that is silver on other models. I preferred the silver bars & trim personally & was hoping to get one of the last n-ted+ models but by the time it came for me to order the new car they'd all gone & I had to get a 360, no major dissapointment though, I can put up with  the black & a bit of leather trim round the seat - the only difference between a n-tec+ & a 360.

Interesting ericos, I didn't realise they were just on the 360 - that will make hunting some down a bit easier! Lee, I think it would be a similar case, get the roof liner off and then its just going to be nuts and bolts with maybe a bit of silicone sealant to be sure.

Shouldn't have to remove the headlining. On my Volvo you just pull the end caps off the roof rails and the bolts are underneath and the QQ looks to be the same as it has end caps also. The nuts are welded onto the roof so you simply unscrew the bolts and remove the roof rails and replace them with the black ones you want and then screw the bolts back in and replace the end caps, job done. I did it myself in no time at all so it must be easy!!
