Cool Picking up my '13 WRX Hatchback Tomorrow! Question on roof rack

Hey everyone,
I am picking up my first Subaru tomorrow. I am getting a 2013 SWP WRX Hatchback . I currently have a yakima roof rack with bike carriers that uses the Q Towers. On Yakima's website it doesn't have any information on which Q clips to use for the 2013. Does anyone know if the Q clips required for the 2012, Q83 and Q128 will fit the 2013?

thanks so much!

My suggestion would be to upgrade your towers to take advantage of the factory mounting points. No sense causing damage with the q clips

You could get the OEM cross bars and sell your Yakima. Thats what I did. I like the look of the OEM and they are pretty affordable. Just a suggestion.

Thanks for the suggestions, and I think a route I'm going to go with.. I have been on yakimas site and like I said before they don't have info on the 2013s, as for the 2012s it says to use the control towers with the landing pad 11s, that should fit on the 2013s, correct? I am still considering OEM but I have a REI gift card that will make it cheaper for me to get yakima than OEM.

I have a Yakima rack on my 11 swp hatch and i just upgraded the towers. The 11-13 should use the same towers

I use landing pad 11, there are two types of bolts it comes with. use the skinny one, not the fat ones. enjoy.
