BAT INC. Roof Rack a no-go on 2005 ZX5
I just spoke to a representative at BAT Inc. and he says you can not use their rack on a 2005 Focus (ZX3 and ZX5). He said the 2005 Focus models sold in the United States do not have the prethreaded holes as existed in earlier model years. He claims that they tried to mount the rack by drilling holes (ouch!) but the rack did not fit due to changes in the dimensions of the vehicle. He says there are no plans to release a updated rack model in the near future.
