If I can't add the rail option, which cross-bars do you guys recommend for me that is also theft proof?

is it screwed on or just snap on?
I'm in the same boat as you: Got the base hatch, plan to get a roof rack in the spring.

There's a post somewhere way back in this thread from someone who had their dealership put rails on their non-sport hatch. It was a big hassle, they had to drill through the roof, and I'd generally be inclined to say that it's not worth the trouble and expense.

You can get a roof rack on your car without the rails, for much less money. It just doesn't look quite as well-integrated, and probably doesn't have the same level of flexibility. There's loads of pictures and information in this thread from people who've set up racks with and without the rails.
