Thule Roof rack for E92

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Has anyone else used the thule roof racks on a E92? I have a 2009 335i.

I ordered exactly what the thule website said, the wingbar 961 roofrack, 753 feet, and the 3039 fitting kit.

The instructions it has to be said are pretty awful, and im struggling to see how it fits on the car without a huge gap underneath.

This is the kit I had
3039
460R
ARB43
544

The fitment was not great on the footing. Like you mention it leaves gaps that cannot be closed. Its the way the footing was designed so theirs minimal contact with vehicle. I hope this helps.

Ah that's ok then, I assumed the gap wasn't supposed to be there.

The actual plastic feet don't touch the body just the metal feet that go into the recesses in the roof. BTW BMW rack fits the same way.

Good to know I always thought BMW rack fitment was perfect.
