Thule Rack Kits

I already own Thule roof racks and ski attachments. Iíve been waiting rather impatiently for Thule to release a new foot kit, rather than me buy a whole new system. Anybody else in the same boat and have any idea how long it usually takes them to support new cars?

Thule makes the crossbars for the OEM accessory roof rack system. The OEM roof rails aren't difficult to install, and Acura sells crossbars that will work with Thule accessories.

( I was thinking that Thule had a foot kit for those roof rails, but I'm not finding a listing. Maybe I'm thinking of our 3rd-gen MDX ).

But don't expect to use the towers that come attached to the OEM crossbars to adapt other Thule crossbars, or use them on other vehicles. Those towers and crossbars are inseparable. I bought a pair and got surprised at how specialized they are.

My experience with the window edge clip mounting tower systems is that the roof WILL get damaged. YMMV
