Roof box for 159 Sportwagon?

Anybody got pics of their roofboxes sitting atop a 159 S/wagon? Looking at Thule Motion 600. Would've liked something a bit longer, but where the roof aerial sits means it shortens the available "roof length".

Hi swenz. have you bought you box already? wich lenght did you choose? i wonder if a box with 2.25m (7,38 i think) is too long. Does it mess with the rear hatch? thanx

mine's a saloon but we carry a big 500 litre box for our roadtrip every summer. it means having the aerial bent back but tbh even after nearly 4 years of ownership the aerial still pings back straight & true once the box is taken off. reception-wise it doesn't make a jot of difference. in short, i wouldn't worry about box size - just get the one that suits your needs and to hell with the aerial

Here are some pics of mine with a 1.8m long box fitted - clear of the aerial by about 5cm and only just overhangs the top of the windscreen.
