I bought used OEM roof racks ($140 C/L) that came off a 5 series car, but the brackets can be moved so they also fit the E46 series. Getting them adjusted spot on took a while, but now that it's done, they install very quickly. Make sure you get the wrench that's keyed to the unique bolt head. A new wrench and 4 bolts is about $70 from the dealer.

The front and back OEM racks look identical, but they are not. The front rack has 3 small wind spoilers on the bottom side of the rack to cut down on whistling.
We have both available below...
