Show Me Your Box

I'm looking for info and photos on cargo roof boxes. If you've got pics of them on you X1 post them and let me / the community know what brand and model.

Riight now I a looking to replace my Yakima loadwarrior basket with a roof box. I've been thinking about the Yakima Sky Lo pro or the Yakima Rocket Pro 11.

I've been trying to get a better idea of how it would look using http://mr-box.com/us/car/bmw/x1

Post whatever you've got. I'm sure this info will help the community.

thanks

I have the Yakima Skybox 16 Carbonite. While we don't put it on the X1 since our Q5 is the family trip car, it would certainly fit. Great box that fits a ton of stuff with reasonably low drag. I have a rack on my garage ceiling that I store it in when not in use.

Went to REI to take a look at a few options. I might be leaning towards the Thule Motion XT L, Motion XT alpine or Yakima Showcase 15. Most likely one of the first two.
