    I have the OEM bars as well and after watching them flex I was nervous as well. My prior car was an Audi A4 and their OEM bars were crazy solid so coming to this is a bit unnerving. Haven't had any other problems though.

    Yeah, I had my two mountain bikes on this past weekend and it did OK. I just take it easy around town. I just got my in no fairing in yesterday. I will add some pics when I get the chance

    I like it. I think I need to adjust some. It taps the roof slightly while on freeway. I love the look of it though. Pretty easy install.

    How do you guys like these things? Can you take them on and off the car or are they permanent?

    You cab remove them. They are great. They flex a lot though. That is the only complaint. they can be removed and installed in about 5 min.

    How high do those oem bars sit off the rooftop? Can one of you guys do me a huge favor and measure the height of the foot pack and/or the distance from bar to top of roof? I am hoping to get the lowest profile bars possible, but the OEM ones seem a bit tall....

    I measured and mine shows about 3 1/2" on the front and 3 3/4" on the rear.

    Where did you measure from? They sure seem like they sit higher than that....how high are the pillars themselves?
