Thule makes excellent products. The only challenge relates to interpreting the instructions on these sometimes complex assemblies. For instance, finding the part number imprint is a challenge by itself. I continue to return to etrailer for both excellent customer service and technical assistance. I was able to reuse my previously purchased aeroblade crossbar by only purchasing the compatible feet for my new vehicle. Danny was able to review part numbers from my previous purchase and order exactly what I needed.

My roof racks continue to be reliable and stand up to the elements.

Ask the Experts about this Thule Roof Rack

  • Recommended Roof Mounted Bike Rack for BMX Bikes on Thule Aero Roof Rack
    For your Thule AeroBlade roof rack, I recommend the Thule ProRide XT Roof Bike Rack - Frame Mount - Clamp On or Channel Mount # TH598004 to transport the BMX bikes. The Big Mouth Bike rack you mentioned has been discontinued and although we have some replacement parts, we don't have the bike rack itself. The ProRide is similar in design but has some upgraded features. The wheel holders slide and have ratcheting straps to secure the front and rear wheels to the tray. The pivoting arm...

  • Does Thule Roof Rack Use Factory Mounting Points on a 2008 BMW 335xi 4 Door
    Yes, adding a Thule roof rack using the following components will use the factory mounting points on the roof of your 2008 BMW 335xi 4 Door. You will need the Thule Fit Kit for Podium Style Foot Pack, # THKIT3028, that you have referenced. You will also need Thule SquareBars, # TH712200, and Thule Rapid Podium Roof Mounted Foot Pack, # TH460R.

  • Roof Rack and Fairing Recommendations for a 2012 BMW 1 Series
    If you want the full European look on your 2012 BMW 135i then I recommend the Rhino-Rack aero bar roof rack using the following parts: # RRVA118B-2, # RRRLKVA, # DK328. This rack does attach to the fixed mounting points. For a fairing if interested you can use Rhino-Rack Fairing for Roof Racks - 44" Long Item # RRRF3. If you like round bars then you can use: Round 48" CrossBars for Yakima Roof Rack System (QTY 2) # Y00408 SkyLine Towers for Yakima Crossbars # Y00148 RoundBar SL...

  • Roof Rack for 2008 Audi Q7 With Flush Mounted Rails
    Thule fit kits are not compatible with OEM roof racks; if you need a roof rack for your Q7 I would be happy to help but would need to know what year your Audi Q7 is.

  • Thule AeroBlade Roof Racks and Compatible Roof Bike Carriers for 2015 BMW 3 Series
    The main difference between Thule's AeroBlade and AeroBlade Edge roof racks for your 2015 BMW 3-Series sedan is that the Edge system offers, for some tastes, a sleeker and more OEM-like appearance since the bars are shorter (35-1/4-inches long) and flow into the footers rather than extend past them toward the sides of the car. The standard AeroBlade bars are 47-inches long. Installation will be slightly easier with the Edge version since the bars and footers are integrated into one assembly...

  • Recommendation for Carrying 4 Bikes on a 2011 BMW 335D
    I spoke with my contact at Curt Mfg. and found that the Curt Trailer Hitch, # C11756, will not fit on your BMW 335D vehicle. At this time there is not a trailer hitch available for the 335 Diesel models. The Trailer Hitch Support Strap, # 18050, that is mentioned in the hitch description is required by Curt Mfg. for warranty. We carry this strap, see link. A Class I hitch is limited to carrying two bikes because the weight of the bikes out farther on a hitch will put too much torque...

  • How to Carry Bikes on a 2013 BMW M135i Hatchback
    The Curt trailer hitch # C11184 is confirmed to fit the coupe and convertible models of the BMW 135i but not the hatchback M135i or the M140i. I reached out to my Curt contact and it's just never been tested. This leaves you with the option of a trunk mount rack or a roof rack like you said you don't really want. The Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top Trunk Mount Bike Rack # HRF2 will be the best fit for a hatchback. However, the BMW has a soft bumper and this might not be a great optoin...

  • How To Use Square Crossbars On a 2015 BMW 3 Series Sedan
    The Thule SquareBar Evo Crossbar System part # TH712200, part # TH460R, and part # THKIT3028 is a great option for a 2015 BMW 3 Series Sedan. It has square crossbars which although newer, have the same dimensions as the older design so you can reuse all your old accessories no problem.

  • How to Carry 2 Bikes on a 2015 BMW 335xi GT
    There are currently no hitches confirmed to fit the 2015 BMW 335xi GT models. But you can install a roof rack because there should be fixed mounting points on the roof of your GT model. You would need fit kit # THKIT3028 and AeroBlade Edge system # TH7602-TH7602. Then you can add a couple of Thule roof mount bike carriers. Below is a list of the models that fit the AeroBlade bars: UpRide # TH599000 Circuit # TH526XT ThruRide # TH535 I have also included links to video reviews...

  • Thule Roof Rack Recommendation for 2009 BMW 328i With Naked Roof
    That will depend on the vehicle style of your 2009 BMW 328i with a naked roof. If you have a 2 door you would want the part numbers # TH7602B-TH7602B and # THKIT3039. If you have a 4-door you would need part # TH7602B-TH7602B and # THKIT3028. If you have a wagon you would want the # TH7601B-TH7601B and # THKIT3028.

  • Is there aTrailer Hitch for a 2007 BMW 328xi Sedan and Options for Carrying a Bike
    There are currently no hitches available for the sedan model 2007 BMW 328xi. What you can do is add a roof rack. You will need 3 items for a roof rack. First, Thule Rapid Podium Roof Mounted Foot Pack, # TH460R. Next, Thule Fit Kit for Podium Style Foot Pack, # THKIT3028. Finally, the SquareBars, # TH712200. You could then add Thule UpRide Roof Mounted Bike Rack - Wheel Hook, # TH599000, to carry a bike. I have included the instructions to this product below. You could also use a rear...
