Mein Auto: 2005 X3
I found a limited selection to get a box that will clear the rear deck spoiler when it's open. That is, if you want a box long enough to carry skis. Wound up with Yakima Pro Series 12. But I don't see this style currently on REI.com. I bought it from a local REI store, with the assurance that if it didn't fit (clear the rear hatch) I could bring it back. I mount it to standard Thule cross bars (non aero). Mounts solid. I don't know that the Yakima box mounts are any more or less secure than Thule. I do know that I have driven into strong headwinds and that it hangs on at effective wind speeds approaching 100 mph.
