My never ending quest for roof racks continue haha.

I already own several Thule products (2 bike racks and 2 ski/snowboard racks).
Are the BMW OEM racks compatible with them?

The BMW OEM seems quite a bit cheaper than the Thule set.
What's the most compelling reason(s) to go with the Thule set instead? Is it basically the aerodynamics and the potential noise?

PatT,
Since you have owned several BMWs, I'm wondering what you do as far as dealing with flat tires for the RFTs.
