So i've had a few threads in the past about which car i am planning on picking up this spring, and i have narrowed it down to the Subaru Legacy Special Edition. I believe it is a great combo with AWD, good looks and decent MPG for i have our Outback, which is basically the same car over 30 on the highway. My only question now is how are the rack systems that go on cars without the crossbars there in the first place. My gripe with getting an Outback is that i'm still young and would like a stylish car, but the Legacy doesn't have the side bars to attach a rack to. So how do these cars take the racks, do they scratch a lot? Any experience with them would be appreciated. EDIT: Could someone if they know, explain the difference between Thule's two options when you run the rack system selector? One seems to be the Aero foot system and the other is the rapid aero multipurpose system.
