[WTB] Roof Rack For Sale? (Sedan)

Does anyone happen to have an OEM roof rack for an E39 sedan for sale? (Or at least one that bolts to the factory holes)

I just bought a 2002 540i and would like to have a roof mounted bike rack. Thanks.

I'm aware of the new Thule ones, but I can't really afford it. I was hoping someone might be thinking of selling their own used one.

Sold my e90 and was curious so I attempted to bolt on the oem e90 bars onto my e39, surprisingly it bolted on. Albeit a little tight. And it doesn't sit flush, but works. 6 months with no problems, and I use my racks weekly. If I remember I'll check the bolts to see if they're just as tight.

Bought the racks used off Craigslist for $100. I'd check Craigslist or Facebook marketplace for local sellers if I were you.

If you go this route be sure to buy the special torx security tool to mount the bolts. I found a similar tool at a roof rack shop, however, the real oem tool can be purchased online.
