Just scored a set on (really post-) ebay for $78 shipped. I like the way they look.
I would not have paid $100/110/140 , but since they were so cheap i decided to spring...
Never can tell when I might want to tie something up there.

ekaxel-

That's an excellent price!! Was someone parting out their MO or were the rails from an accessory outfit?

Why are these bars so damn expensive??

Are they using alchemy to turn gold bars into steal? :confused:

I'm still amazed they aren't standard equipment.

Why does Nissan put roof rails on a car and then not include the cross rails?? That's like including a tow hitch on the car as standard equipment and then charging $150 for the harness. That is simply stupid. Are they that desperate for cash?

I agree... I figured... worse come to worse, I would get some rope and a couple of 2x4's and make my own.. (kidding of course...)

The roof rails are there more for styling then for function. While yes, I suppose you could put a roof cargo carrier up there, I think the appeal to most buyers is that roof rails make the vehicle look more functional and utility-oriented (even if they never use the roof rack).

Personally I think wagons (ok, crossovers) look a bit odd without roof rails, like they are bald. Whenever I see a Mazda 6 wagon, which generally doesn't have roof rails, it makes me wince.
