Thanks.
I am sure this question is answered already but I want to give clarification because there seems to be a lot of conflicted info


82710142220 is for your e46 and the 82710415054 (that ECS is selling) is only for cars with built in rails. Just look at the mounting points between the two systems and you will see what I am talking about

ie...82710415054 mounts to the parallel rails whereas the 82710142220 mounts directly on to your roof (via the BMW roof mounts)

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.
I need that. My Thule 753 whistles more than I can deal with.
Probably gonna get an OEM and sell my Thule.
