Can anyone help me understand why I should pay so much more for the round bars?

Or, for that matter, why I should go for Yakima or Thule instead of OEM? Is it just because OEM bars don't lock?

thx!
Thats the only difference I can see to be honest. If you go to subarugeniuneparts.com you can have the bars for as little as 150 I think. The yakima option is nice for its versatility and ability to lock...is it worth it, well thats another discussion altogether. I would go with the OEM option.
