: Did some research on the factory roof rails some time ago. Not cheap by any means. Dealer quoted over $1K for some unattractive equipment. Decided that I can do without for now.

I'd be interested in knowing somewhere other than the dealer to even look.

: You can check out Thule racks & stuff at many outdoor gear shops. Good stuff. Cheaper than BMW.

: I was quoted $275 for the rear shade for my Touring. You might try shopping around.

I'd also like to know where you were quoted that. Again, the only place I found that had a lead on it was the dealer.

: Also, don't forget that many dealers give a 10-15% discount with BMWCCA membership.

: - just survived the Fort Worth tornado.

Good to know you survived. :) Also nice to hear from someone with the exact same car as me about these issues.
