I have an opportunity to pick one up locally. Can anyone who has one post up their experiences with potential scuffing or scratching of the paint? Also if you have pics with it mounted on your NB can you post them up so I can see how it looks installed?

Thanks

I've heard of people putting that clear bra material under the feet to protect the paint.. I can't say, my roof rack is on all the time and I don't really care about the paint up there :p

I had OEM racks on my old NB and my GTI for long periods of time. As long as the paint is clean (and preferably waxed) when the carrier bars are installed, it shouldn't pose and issue. Oh yes, the rack feet also need to be cleaned before install.

Got them installed. I was wondering what would be the best way to get them under the rear window seals. With a little advice from Org members it wasn't that difficult :)

This was my first rack, I liked it a lot, but when I had the opportunity to get the VW one, I sold this. :)
