hi, I thought I would share my experience with some new side bars I got for my 2004 CR-V (see ebay item 361220617274) they are made in Slovakia, are of great quality and a perfect fit - indeed they are far better and more robust than the £400 plus one's I saw on a neighbours car. his are only held on via 2 bolt brackets behind the sill, where as these have an 'out rigger' that picks up on the sub frame. in fact I queried this 'extension' out with the sellers and they assured me they would fit - which they did quite easily. the only problem I has was with the rusted up threaded holes under my car, but fortunately I own a full set of metric taps (8mm needed) I can heartily recommend the really great priced side bars, and have added a few photos. nb: I have no affiliation with the eBay seller automotive_jandj except for this being my first purchase from them.
