i'll install it tomorrow. will report back. stay tuned.

oh, and tischer also does not make a distinction between Sedan/Coupe/M3.

Can you update please?

I just intalled the OEM rack (part # ending with 220) and it went on fine mostly, but the front passenger side was a bit tricky to tighten the coded screw down because the crossbar sticks out on that side a little more than the driver side, therefore the wrench-key had couldn't come straight down to get a good grip.

I had to tighten it at an angle that didn't allow it to get a good grip on the screw head. Eventually got it down tight though, but not as easy as the other three ones.

I wonder if the preset position on the driver side was a bit off from the factory. My front bar is slightly off center towards the passenger side (see pic).

I'll add the snowboard holder soon.
