    I guess I could never figure out why you couldn't replace those bolts with studs, then slip the rack footing around the stud, then clamp the works with a nut on top.

    Never had a need for a roof rack on ours so I never gave it serious study but somehow it doesn't look that hard.

    I briefly looked for rack options for our ‘12. I don’t really need it because we have a larger car we use for trips to carry us and stuff, and it has bars for a roof box. Still I figured if bases/towers weren’t that much I could swap the bars between cars.... no dice. I really liked the idea of putting our huge roof box (7.5’ x 3’ x 18”) on top of the C, even if it were just for taking a picture.
