Default Looking for a roof rack, 2008 Astra XR 4 dr

Anyone have any idea where I can get a roof rack? I have looked at Thule but they want between $450-550 from what I see. The car has a sunroof and already has the 4 mounting points installed.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I would go the used route. eBay and CL might be a good source.

The fitkits are PN #3025, set on eBay right now for $50:

And the bar is below:

I have had the Yakima system on my Astra with 2 bike racks for 7 years and love it. It was about $350 new. Yakima's "Landing Pad 11" will bolt directly to the roof rails of our Astras. There are 4 little plastic trap doors you pop open, each revealing a threaded hole. You just bolt the "pad" to that, then the roof rack system snaps into the pad, so it's easy to remove for winter.

I bought a BMW rack off ebay. The feet are the same. There may be pictures from winter 09 on this site.

I gave it to my buddy when he bought the 540i V8 I owned for a few months.
