2012 OEM Roof Rack Carrier Base Cross Bar Help
 
I've been debating on getting the OEM roof rack (or any roof rack). I go camping a few times a year and would love to take my car but I can't fit everything in it. Does anyone have the OEM rack or suggestions for racks. My biggest fear is getting it and it damaging the paint over time from taking it on and off. Is there any way around the possibility of damaging the paint. I know there is clear bra, but can you just buy a small amount, or is that not a good idea? Any input would be great! Here is the link to what I'm looking at:

Ah perfect just what I was looking for. What's the difference between clear bra and clear vinyl?

Would anyone recommend the OEM cross bars, or have any suggestions?

Clear bra maybe heavier gauge vinyl. I'm getting the oem cross bars. They are nice. People leave them on all year around. Gives its w nice look.

Are you putting the vinyl on yours? Does the vinyl come off easily?
Yea I agree the car looks pretty cool with them on.

Yea :D does the fairing rub on the roof? I wonder what one will fit on the OEM bars since they're oval. I just ordered the bars and vinyl.
