Roof rack compatibility?

Postby grantwarden » Tue May 29, 2012 11:03 am

My parents have some Thule roof racks left over from their 318I (4dr) and I can't find a damn thing anywhere that says definitively if it'll fit on my 323iS (coupe) Will it fit? I can't remember if their 318 was OBD1 but I believe it was, not sure if that makes a difference pillar wise.

Thanks bud. The hangers are clapped out but it seems to fit OK.

OK, Just to help out the rest of the internets, the racks from 4 door models WILL NOT fit 2 door models. The 2 door models do not have a rain gutter, which is integral in mounting the racks. Thule 400xt aero foot packs will work with any thule rails and fit on the e36 with no rain gutter (2 door models, those with only glass on top of window). Traverse 400xt foot packs will also work.
