    525iT Roof rack

    I am looking at a `94 wagon and the snap-in roof rack pieces are not with the car. Were these pieces standard equipment?
    Do aftermarket racks snap into the factory slots?
    Any idea of cost?

    Thanks

    No, the roof rack did not come with the car.

    The rack costs about $600 from BMW. You can get it cheaper from BMA. I couldn't find any aftermarket types available (except gutter clamp types, which defeats the purpose) when my wife had a Touring. The crosss member kit is 82 12 9 401 648, but make sure that includes the bases. The bases are 51 13 8 149 997/998 and you need two of each.

    Re: 525iT Roof rack

    Tim Q - You may wish to look into the Oris brand racks sold as aftermarket equip for Mercedes & VW. I used the mercedes c124 rack on my 540iT with a few small mods & it comes out looking like it is OEM BMW. Check out Brunos E34 site - int he upgrades section you'll find some pics and insturctions.

    Best of all the Oris racks are not expensive, have many options and are of very high quality.
