Did you try searching on the Thule, Yakima, or other Web sites? They have a little program that'll tell you what you need for your specific car.

I have the Thule rack. I love it and have all sorts of attachments. I have installed several of these on our other vehicles and Yakima does not fit on the sedan. I tried several times and had somebody at REI install it and no luck. Only Thule fits the sedan. I see you have a coupe, but for the sedan owners out there!

Exbauer: I remember seeing your Member's Ride picture with a roof rack on your sedan. I'm a mountain biker and wanted to get a rack for my sedan too (instead of popping down the back seats and putting the bike in the trunk!)... how much time does it take to put on or take off the rack? I don't want to leave it on all summer.

I leave it on there. It is just easier to do that and it does not look that bad. If you do get a rack, I recommend getting the locks. That way, nobody and take it off and walk away. The installation process is not that hard. The directions are really straight forward. It takes about 15mins and after you do it once, it should take you 5mins to do it again.

If you have a coupe, you do not have to get the extension kit, just get another set of the recommended brackets and space them out. The rack is angled, but that saves you $100.
