For sale is my Thule Rapid Aero Bar Roof Rack System that I bought exactly a year ago. I originally paid $600 for everything.This rack system is coming off of a B5 Passat but will fit other cars as well, you would just need to buy a fit kit specific to your vehicle. Are for those of you who are not familiar with the Rapid Aero Bars, these would be the ones that are more of an oval shape and are made out of aluminum so you don't have to worry about rust. I am located in Utica, NY and would prefer local pickup or a could drive to meet someone but I do want it sold so if it had to come down to it I would ship.




Make me an offer!

edit: the OP says, $350 OBO. Make me an offer.

I'd buy just the fairing if available. If not, could you please let me know what size works for our cars? Thanks.

Not really trying to break up the kit because if you don't have a fairing with these bars they can be very noisy. Also, if you go on Thule's website and punch in all your car info in the fit guide it will tell you what exact size you need. I believe you would need the 44" Fairing which is part #872XT.

Thanks, I have the rapid aero bars, and they whistle at low speeds. Thanks for the info, it seems I tried to figure it out on their sight and never could, so I gave up. GLWS, it's a good set up and your $250 price is a good deal.

Just to confirm, this rack set is for a car WITHOUT roof rails right? My wagon already has rails so I think I'd need different feet. Thanks.
