Are the optional roof rail fixed?

Can you remove the roof rails once installed? As in use them for ski season and then take them off? I'm referring to the $500+ rails. Not the universal support system that attaches to them.

BMW accessories literature doesn't say much about them.

Educated guess would say no - I think you will have to drill holes to install.

In Canada, you can special order the roof rails (the ones that run from front to back at the edge of the roof over the windows as in a standard X5) from production - not sure if that is the case stateside.....

I am also betting that the installation after the fact is reasonably expensive as it likely involves dropping the headliner in the car.....
