    2015 Thule roof rack/bike rack

    Hey everyone,

    I'm trying to set up a roof rack on my new 2015 wrx but of course the rack I had on my outback sport doesn't work.

    What I currently have are the crossroad feet with square bars and then a big mouth rack for my bike. From the research I've done it seems like none of my stuff will work except the bike part. The thule site suggests the clamps that sort of hook on the doors... but that doesn't seem right. I was sort of hoping that their aeroblades would connect directly into the car but apparently they don't.

    Anyone have a roof rack on their wrx? What parts did you get?

    Thanks!

    I plan to skip the roof rack and get one of these once my 2016 WRX comes in:

    Torklift Central | 2015 Subaru WRX/WRX-STI EcoHitch - Subaru - Find Your EcoHitch® - Trailer Hitch and Towing

    (Unless someone with personal experience with one tells me a good reason not to!)

    No roof rack here either. I've just never liked them compared to hitches for bikes, so unless you plan on tossing a storage compartment up there from time to time, a hitch is more subtle and doesn't ruin the car's lines. I plan to go with the torklift as well. It is a bit expensive though and even more so if you don't do the install yourself (which I'm not really equipped to do at home. The local "authorized" retailer (MN) quoted me 2 to 2.5 hrs labor totalling $250 to $310 just for the installation and I'd buy the part myself.

    Hey, just reading about your roof rack dilemma.... I used to have a VW, used the Thule "clamp" style on it, worked fantastic! I now have a 2013 hatch back, it has the screw ports for the rack in the roof. If it didn't, I would deffiantly use the "clamp" style again. Fan of the roof rack! As for looks, I think it add too! Only think is, makes noise when driving fast or on a windy day and the sun roof is open.
