Here's the rack I have. I'm just steeling this quote from another thread so I don't have to track down the pics. I have to use a stretch kit (the bars running parallel with the car) with my three door but you won't need it for your five door. This unit is not cheap but you'll be very hard pressed to find a rack that doesn't require holes, is cheap, and looks half way decent (some cheaper ones use straps rather than clamps with look very cheap IMO)

BTW the part above the windshield is called a fairing. They don't necessarily have to be the same as the rack brand (mine is not a Yakima fairing).
