Let me know what you turn up - but I will give you the info I found:

The BMW racks are expensive. Over $400 for the feet and cross bars.

Yakima and Thule both make feet that will fit into your rails for about half the price. Look here

here

and here

The Yakima/Thule solutions will come in around $200 for the base sets, and then you can use any of that company's attachments. The Bimma parts are expensive and don't fit well to other racks/components.

There is a LOT of discussion of this topic in the archives - look for touring roof rack or yakima touring.

Good Luck
