Was looking for the roof rails for the bars price from page 39 of the B-Max brochure. My locale dealer cant find it nor can I on the"t"internet. Have just sent an email to ford uk so fingers crossed. Will post if they get back to me
Just had a reply from Ford"Thank you for your email. Please accept our apologies for the delayed
With regards to your query I can confirm that Ford has B-Max
roof rails (aluminium) are available as an accessory. These are required to
attach roof cross bars. Please note this accessory will be available from Jan
2013 and prices will be available from then.
I hope this information has
helped. If you do have any further queries please do not hesitate to contact
Ford Customer Relationship Centre"
No Good asking for them for Xmas then.
Since it is now March, have you gotten any further in ordering the roof rails? Any idea what the price is going to be?
I am in Switzerland. The local dealer as well as one in Germany have told me that they can't order them..
Do you know whether a "standard" roof rack can be attached to these rails? Or only the B-Max roof rack seen on page 39? It kind of looks as though the rails don't have a space underneath, which would make it difficult to attach a standard rack.
I have also used Allen Parts twice now for mud flaps and door sill protectors and saved a lot on normal retail prices. They supply genuine Ford parts on Ebay and Amazon. I will always try them before a dealer This is their contact from ebay. Tel : 01604 773366 or email[email protected]
I've used Allenparts for items for my 2 previous cars via greedybay [sorry eBay
], and have always had a good service from them!
I have an order with them at present for wind deflectors for my B-Max. These should have arrived last week,[coming from ClimAir in Poland] but unfortunately, the shipment was damaged on arrival with them, so they notified me, and will ship out once the new batch has arrived. They're about the only parts dealer that seems to value their customers
We've just ordered an Ink-Blue B-Max Titanium X with Panoramic roof and also saw the roof rails in the Accessory catalogue (want to put my THULE roof box on it), but our Dealer still wasn't able to provide availability or price - apparently, Ford said that prices would be available from Feb 2013 onwards, but even the Dealers are STILL waiting for Ford to release this information, and it's now mid-April !
Our Dealer did suggest that the price could be "about" £300, but that was just a (wild) guess ??!!
... doesn't seem to indicate roof rails as such, but seems to indicate a "special fit" (?) THULE roof box with associated mounting cross-bars (no rails mentioned) - picture on website is rubbish as it seems to show a "generic" ford vehicle roof displaying a roof box (and cross-bars) only.
Quoted promotional price is (deep breath !) ....£350+VAT !
Ha Ha, Looks like I won't be buying any accessories!!. I go on the Ford site, click on accessories and the next page says "choose your model". Out of the line up of Ford cars I click on B-max. The car moves forward one car length. That's clever thinks I. Nothing happens. I click on the car again. It moves one car length. Yeah.. OK... Now what? Nothing. I give up and come back to the forum. I save££££'s!!
