Personally, I'd buy a California car only. Not sure of what a car may have been subjected to in the harsh winters. At least in California, we don't salt our roads (no offense to people back East) .

Cross Bar Spacing

I have read the installation instructions but after putting them on, they look too far forward and not spaced wide enough apart. Has anyone deviated from the recommended spacing?
