Need a complete roof rack for my 08 wrx for my snowboard. What would be my best options?

Thanks!

Wrxzboost is right. I had the 38" Thule from a previous car, but it doesn't quite fit the entire length on my 11' wrx. I ended up selling the 38" and buying the 44". It fits better around the feet and looks much better IMO.

Why not put a pic up so he can see. (And since this is a pic thread...) Obviously everyone has different opinions. IMHO I like the 38". I don't think it needs to go all the way to the edge but to each their own.

Do the Yakima or Thule fairings mount onto the OEM rack without modification?

No only the Inno. Mighty mounts will allow them to work

Hmmm. I never thought about that. Actually I bet it would look pretty good without them.

I just store mine when not in use. However, when you do need it, it is a life saver. I got my first one stolen, and am on my second one.

Hey everyone, I've got an 07 WRX sedan. The mountains are starting to get some snow, so I need a 4 snowboard capable roof rack asap. The setup Krazy has is awesome, but don't want to tear apart my interior and rain gutters.

Are there any options that don't "hook into the door jam"? I went through the Thule fit guide and it recomended the 950 which looks like it does. Just seems like something that may scratch my paint.

The I went to rack attack and used their fit guide. I gave me gutterless mount options. Now I'm confused because I thought my car had rain gutters, pretty sure that's what the black strips on my roof are for, lol. Any clarification would be great.

Any particular roof racks I should look at? Idealy something that is guaranteed not to scratch my baby lol. And if anybody knows where I can go in Calgary to get one that would be great. On all my cars in the past I've done my own work, but after spending a good chunk on a new car I'd rather have someone else do it... for now
