what he said ^
there's a thread.
Scalewoodman - here is the site I used:Skr9- Look great! Could you post the link to the site when you have a sec please? I am holding out for OEM bars but this is an excellent option. Can't believe they're not available in the local market (USA).
These bars have the groove down the center, and I think most bars are following this type of format; I primarily use mine for carrying bikes, and they adapted perfectly fine to these new Thule bars (the bike carrier worked similarly well on my VW and Porsche OEM bars which also had the same style groove down the center of the bar).I won't call it a problem with the thule offerings, but specialization - I'm guessing skr9 also had to order ski attachments for the roof bars, they also have kayak attachments etc.
They are pretty substantial. am going to work with them to attempt to gasket the gaps in the assembly where I presume the air noise is coming from. In hindsight the Thule Aeroblade may be quieter but n/a this side of the Atlantic. These will serve the purpose even if I take them off when not needed.They look good, I like the logos on them but are very tall.
