What did you do? Blackdog?

Are those part numbers from thule? or from BMW or what?
Do you think I could order just 4 of the posts?
And then use my thule cross bars and bike trays?

I ride bikes and have a kayak so I'm looking at what to do.

no rails now on my '95 525ita.

I have a thule setup on my van with special posts that grab the factory rails,
then I have xlong thule cross bars, I can put the bike racks on the outside and the kayak down the middle if I have too.

I saw where thule has a set with special posts that mount to roof slots, and it comes with its own rails. The price seems a little steep for me.

if I could find some original bmw rails to mount to roof (if they're like what I saw on the current models), I think my current setup would clamp to them alright.


what kind of factory rails are available

Suggestions?
