Will these fit a 2008 VW Rabbit S? Does it come with the fit kit? Thanks!
Please use the car rack configurator. There is a banner right above the image that has a link to this feature.
this is a solid rack that is very versatile. with the load bars, there are many different attachments to put on for different things like bikes and skis. the smooth curved walls make for just a little bit more of an aerodynamic design than most feet for racks, which are just upright and angled. with the fit kit, this is a good buy.
Customer service is everything - call the guys at BC.com they know their stuff.
and the product is goos as well.
I bought the AeroFoot pack to change mountings from my Bronco to my little Honda.
Although the instructions weren't quite clear, once you figure out how to release the foot with fit kit by pressing the ratchet release under the foot, it slipped onto the roof bar and adjusted to the car as quickly as my old rain gutter mounts.
I don't leave the system on the car, but it takes less than 5 minutes to install with the old style ultimate bike mounts.
I got the Thule roof rack for my '07 Honda Fit so i can throw my bike/snowboard on the roof and use the inside for gear/dog/people. Factory suggested distances for the load bars are a little too close to put a bike on the roof using a 2-piece bike carrier but after adjusting the bars i found no problems what-so-ever. The whistle from the bars on the highways isn't even that bad, (eventually i'll either make a valience or buy the thule one).
Unacceptably Difficult to Install
Be warned that if you have a 2004-2007 style Toyota Prius, this is a nightmare to install. There are multiple steps that simply are impossible to perform without improvising. Unless you are extremely handy or can have this professionally installed, I would avoid this for a Prius. I did finally get mine successfully installed, but it took 3 days and lots of problem solving when the steps in the instructions were either unclear or physically impossible. What a nightmare. And yes, I had the proper fit kit for my car.
These are not as easy as you would think to install. When mounted on the roof of a midsize car with a wide stance snowboard set-up, you have to mount the bars far apart. When they are far apart the roof is not flat and the rectangular load bars are not parallel to the roof. When adding the board rack they do not stand straight up and angle away from each other. They look silly. Yakima load bars are round and this problem would not occur.

I'm trying to adjust my Aero Foot Pack 361X for my ski racks. They fit my 01 Chev Malibu. Now I need to use them on my 08 Chev Malibu. Will they work? I want to make sure the racks will stay secure on my car.
ROVER 400 '97
I HAVE A ROVER 400 AND I WANT A SET WITH CAR BARS AND SKI RACKS.WHAT IS YOUR PROPOSAL
Is this the aero foot 400xt. Also please...
Is this the aero foot 400xt. Also please let me know what is the fit kit I need for a Honda Civic Hatchback DX 1998.
400xt is simply Thules item number for this foot pack. Thule Aero Foot Pack and Thule 400xt Aero Foot Pack are the same thing.
Does what it is supposed to do. Just be sure to measure the size as Thule recommended a smaller size for my car than I purchased.
