Roof rails/bars for 159 Sportwagon (existing roof tracks)? PLEASE HELP!!!

Hi all,

I'm after a set of roof bars for my vehicle ('08 1.9JTDM Ti Sportwagon). It's already got the 2 longitudinal roof tracks which have the removable plastic/metal insert fitted along its whole length as it obviously didn't come with fitted rails. Am I correct in thinking that if I remove the insert there should be a way for the track to accept an aftermarket fitting (e.g.Whispbar)? Does anyone know of any aftermarket roof bars which will fit into the track without using the ones which tuck underneath the top of the door frame as I know this can cause damage? Or is it possible to get OE longitudinal rails fitted by alfa to which I can then attach a set of roof bars?

I know there are a few threads asking similar questions but none I've come across seem to mention models with the existing track!

Please, Please help me as I seem to be getting nowhere fast!
