Looks great.

Did you drive around with a bike rack on but no bikes?

Inaugural last minute trip to see friends back home. Phase 2 is the full MTB-on-roof test whir the sun is still shining!

Default Solenoid seals

So a few weeks back I notice a small drop of oil as I reverse out of my garage. later that weekend I discover a nice, regular pulse of oil as the engine runs from the solenoid seals. Turns out the originals dont like to last longer than 75k miles (who knew?!).

Managed to limp the 100 miles or so back home - stopping every 20 miles to keep her topped up with premium 5w30 - and replacing the new seals next week.

If you ever want the underside of your car oiled and protected from the elements though, this is the way to do it :) Proper oily mess.

Fits like a glove and installed with moonroof open to ensure no rubbing (plenty of clearance at sides and above).

Off to Halfrauds tomorrow for a bike carrier then my summer, urban utility look is complete

Can you not cut the rear bar down a touch to keep it in line with the taper of the roof? The OE roofrack is like this [with a smaller rear bar]. I think you can usually do this with aero bars as the end caps will cover a cut. Can't remember how thebrackets attach the bar though so may need to redrill that part!

It's on the list. Already cut the adjustment channels in the rear square bar but do at some point want to trip the ends down too for better body flow. Caps come off easily enough so should be easy enough.
