Roof Rack Question
My 328i will arrive in May sometime I expect. I want to get a roof rack sorted out so I can put my canoe on it soon after the car arrives.
I currently have a Yakima rack on my 1999 Audi A4. I don't know if the Q towers from the Yakima will fit the 328 or not, but I did notice that BMW sells a rack that looks like it might fit into factory mount points. Does anyone have experience with this rack?

The price on the BMW site is a modest $259. It is odd that when you add it to your cart it gives an "installed" price of $315.55. What "installation" is there? Is this just the dealer putting it on your roof for you?
If the BMW rack fits into factory mount points on the roof that is a plus since the Yakima Q towers have to hook under the roof inside the doors, deforming the rubber weatherseals at the top.
