Subject: <E36> Roof Racks for Coupes [Summary]

First off, I would like to say thank you to all who responded to my post. Your experiences were very helpful and informative. They are (in no particular order):

Now that I have gotten that out of the way, here are the results:

Amazingly, everyone suggested to look into the Thule racks except for one person (suggested
Yakima). One individual also suggested looking into magnetic feet racks that work well on sports
cars from MOMO. These were racks for skis only.

Installation of the Thule's (for the front rack) attaches to screws under the rubber lining of the
window frame. This is a special fit kit you can buy with the racks. As for paint scratches/problems,
all said to keep the rack feet clean and the car waxed to avoid any damage.

Thanks again for all the responses. If anyone else is interested in receiving more detailed info,
please send me e-mail privately.
