Agreed?
1) You're losing hope too easily. While I agree this is the case and which is what we've been saying all along, Rich is pulling several racks for us. Wait and see. You just might have a special rack--but I doubt it as it seems highly unlikely.

2) I am not so sure about that. RealOEM doesn't agree with that either. That rack you say you are experiencing (purple tag 678) is installed on everything from 316ti to 330i. RealOEM says the purple tag 678 rack stopped in the US on 9/01 in favor for the 712 rack but CONTINUED for all other 323, 325, 328, etc. in the US and on ALL cars in europe.

3) It's all we have short of tearing open racks.

I'm so glad my car has a ZHP rack. I feel like it handles better already!
