If yes, I dont like it :p
Some get them only for looks but I use mine for hauling bikes or snowboards. If you ever tried to stick two full sized bikes in the rear hatch and some gear, its no easy feat. Same for a pair of 160cm snowboards...If you want to take a ski trip to a place that's an hour or further away, its much more convenient to pack the rest of your gear/food in the car when the snowboards are secured to the roof. It's also nice not to have to throw a snow covered board in your hatch to melt snow/ice everywhere

^^^ I have been snowboarding, mountain biking and riding BMX since I was 10. Trying to put a crappy rear hook-on rack on my hatch sucks, not to mention it scratches the car... Now I can throw the boards/bikes on top and not have to worry. Keeping the snow out of my car is a plus too! I am goin to purchase the bike track attachments when it gets closer to spring, I'll be ready for some downhill!

Just please don't leave it on there long term (or leave it b/c u switch to bike or watersport mounts in warm mths). i just pulled mine off after about 8-9yrs (!) and boy does it work over the roof's finish. Not just for a car that nice. Enjoy it!
