I might do that to my wink mirror... My buddy that sold it to me had it wrapped in black and white houndstooth vinyl, but it didn't really work with my car.

I have an 07 Impreza Wagon with no keys for the locked cross bars.
The 4 locks are stamped E018.
The local dealer that sold the car originally blew me off to a locksmith that
thinks he needs $85 for lunch.
There was some mention that the OEM racks were Yakimas but their 3 digit codes
are prefixed with an "A".

Anybody know how I can wriggle out of this on the the cheap?

Yup! and honestly i think theyre the best option because i had the ski attachment that subaru makes (i forget which yakima model it is) but it whistled like a bitch, even with a fairing. The fatcat is nearly silent which is really nice and it fits a ton up on the roof especially if you have it angled.

Factory cross bars with Yakima Highrollers. As stated before, the front crossbar definitely has some flex in it, so the bikes do move a little when hitting bumps etc, but throughout general driving don't seem move too much.

Just picked up my new crossbars for a good deal, looking to order some inno medium fairing soon (maybe black friday), looking at the orsracks but theyre backordered right now.

Also would anyone know if these are the 08 thick crossbar or the 11 thin crossbar?

I bought a set of Yakima lock cores and they came with a skeleton key to pull out the old cores.

Nothing crazy, just a FatCat6 on the OEM Cross Bars.

IIRC, theres a even a custom bracket you can use to make the installation of the Fatcat6 onto the OEM bars much cleaner.
