I've been under the impression that dealer racks re overpriced and not compatable w/ other aftermarket stuff. I was hoping that there would be Yakima or Thule solution out there. Are the dealer racks crossbars or do they go from front to back like the previous gen WRXs and the outbacks?dealers offer a wide range of roof accesories
if your dealer is overprice check online, there is online subaru dealer that sell for less
i got my sport grille from www.subarugenuineparts.com for more thant 50% off my local dealer price.
dealer rack is crossbars and are bolt-on , check around your roof, there is 4 attach point
i stopped by my dealer and he quoted me 700$ painted and installed..000006790 said:I called two dealers after visiting mine today to get the part number for the STi spoiler.. they all said that they do not even have a part number for it yet. You know the schematics they have of all the parts? Not even on there. Hmm? Japan market subaru has them but to the tune of 500 plus shipping unpainted.. its like a 300 part max but I still NEED it lol.
The Subaru branded fork mount bike trays are Yakima Viper trays. I haven't seen the down tube clamp tray yet, but I would suspect that it's a Yakima tray as well. Any Yakima tray should work with the OE roof rack and clamps. Thule is working on products that will fit the 08 Imprezas: http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1433853&highlight=ThuleThe Subaru-branded tray-style bike rack is, IMHO, comparably-priced to a single Thule/Sportworks tray, although, IMHO, the latter are nicer (especially as regards the front wheel tie-down point).
There's also a fork-mount-QR-style Subaru bike rack to fit the crossbars.
This isn't an issue for me, personally, until the weather gets warmer. By then, I'm hoping there will be a Thule/Sportworks offering that fits the '08 Subaru crossbars.
