Another 156 roof bars question...

I've searched and found a lot of conflicting advice and rarely with any pictures so I'm not sure I've found the answers I'm after.
I fancy some roof bars for my 156 to be used on rare occasions for camping etc to take a roof box (as the boot isn't very big if we're honest) and I found these on eBay:
Basically I want to know if they can be easily fitted for use with a box then removed again when I get home, without damaging anything as I don't want to have roof bars on 24/7 as they spoil the look of the car and only add a drag factor as if petrol isn't expensive enough.
I've seen some comments that they ruin the door to body rubbers and even they dent the roof.

Any advice would really be appreciated.

you should find that there is a small locating point above each door under the rubber seal that this style of roof bar locks onto - from memory it looks like the head of a bolt. This style of roof bar locates on these.

As to damaging the roof - mine have not, as to damaging the rubber - mine have not, though I was careful when fitting and removed shortly after use.

I stoped using mine when I traded in my SW for a GT earlier this year.

I put my bars on yesterday to go and get some timber from a DIY store.
It only takes 5-10 minutes to put on or take off and I've not noticed any damage yet.
