Nice! I have the same Thule roof bars and basket. Can't wait to head into the Rockies and camp with it.

Quick question: I assume you ski or board? If so, do you use a the rack for your boards/skis? I was going to get a rack (still unsure of which model, but most likely a Thule) but I can fit three people and all our gear with no issue inside the X1, so I kind of held off on the purchase. Which rack did you get and is it worth it in your estimation? I kind of shy away from the idea of my board fluttering in the wind and stuff when I can fit in in a bag inside the car. But I would like to maybe have that option. Just would like an informed opinion, as you're a Coloradian. Thanks!

Thanks LevinBR, our set up is used so much to get things home. Timber, furniture, spare rim, luggage, it handles it all.

Thanks SoX1derful. To answer your question, I have had a paddle and long(skate) board on the rack, no issues with handling them at all.

The basket I bought is here:
https://www.thule.com.au/products/ca...canyon-859002/

I also opted for Thule Wing bars edges as the OEM BMW seemed a little high off the roof to me? Plus, I have always run Thule products over the years and they have never let me down. Link:

Hope that helps . By the way, I'm from Australia

hey mate, no worries lol.

Let me know how you go with the basket, it will look nice on your whip that's for sure. Your's is mint af

Not sure if you knew but you can swap out the fairing for something a little more interesting if the mood ever takes you:

Thanks Utututu. Your car is nice, this bar would suit it well.

I have replaced my cabin filters and cowl with the below:

Thanks mate, appreciate you dropping by. I must admit your thread gave me some inspiration and ideas with your X1. Do you still have it? Any updates or recent trips?
