Sorry I've been away but after buying the 540 (THANKS FOR ALL THE RECOMMENDATIONS). I've been hard at work.
But as always after a run of hard work, vacation is coming up and it'll be time for some R & R.
Anyway, the family and I will be taking a trip from Philly up to Maine for July 4th with some assorted camping gear and golf clubs. While I think most of the gear will fit in the trunk, a roof rack will make the job easier (although much less attractive).
What I need to know is this. BMW sells a roof rack that hooks into the factory mounting points, and I've heard Thule has a similar one. Is the BMW rack compatible with Thule, is one better than the other? What other solutions do you all recommend.
(Interesting side note.)
The wife suggested renting a SUV for the trip. GASP. And here I thought we bought the 540 so we could do family road trips in comfort and speed. LOL
Thanks in advance, and I'll try to be a more active participant in the future.
