I got mine from my buddy who works at a ski/snowboard shop around here at his employee discount price. $240.00 (can't pass that up)

I might be able to hook you up with some sort of discount Rally, I'll ask him, see what he can do for me... lmk if you're interested.
Konky, do you leave it on all the time?

It looks pretty old school with the fairing up front too... sick.

Well, the first year, i had it on for late fall and Winter, took it off for spring cleaning. I only have the snowboard attachments for it, so theres really no need for it in the summer except for looks. I still have it on now, and am debating to take it off this summer or just leave it on. I love the way it looks. I might start mountain biking, so I'll just have to get the attachments for that... and have a reason to keep the rack on!

(KILO, we posted at the same time on our last posts, not sure if you seen the last post on the last page, it shows the rack better)

Cool dude...

The main complaints I've heard of the Thule's and Yakima's is just that you can't leave them on all the time without causing marking.

those people don't know how to detail their cars then. A quick claybar and detail takes the little marks (if any) left when the rack is removed.

I am 100% happy with mine

When i was leaving my roof rack on my Jetta a lot I got 4 small pieces of clearbra and put that on the roof under the pads from the towers. That way the rack was resting on the clearbra and not resting directly on the paint.

Konky, I meant to ask you... could you snap some close-ups of where the towers attach to the roof? I looked at the Yakimas yesterday, and I can't see how those would be sturdy at all.

no suction. It's kinda hard to explain how it works, maybe look on thule's website. I mean, I know how it works, but it's hard to type it. Pictures would help, I'll snap a few later this week for ya Kilo

Sweet, thanks Konky. Yeah, the pictures help a little, but it's hard to picture it in my head.

yeah, that thing on the side (with the circle) flips out and is turned to tighten it down. like i said, it's hard to explain in type, but if you saw it, you'd be like, thats simple as shit!

and believe me, it's sturdy! I can pull on it so hard, and all it does is rocks my car. it ain't going anywhere. If you wait till July when we have an east coast meet, I'll have Griff, Rally, etc. take a look at it closely and have them give you their impressions.

Aight, cool man. I think I'm going to go pick up some Thule's when I get my car back. I can't handle throwing the surf board in the car anymore... not to mention the fact that I can't take anyone with me in the car if I have it in there.
