    Question Looking for a good roof rack for my 9-3

    Hi guys,

    Newbie post here...

    I've recently acquired a 2008 9-3 Sedan and I'm looking for a roof rack on which I can fit (ideally) my Thule box as well as my Saris Kayak Saddles... So it needs to be a grooved roof rack (the accessories slide into the bar).

    Rola makes a rack similar to what I want... just not for the 9-3 :-(

    Saab USA Parts have this rack which looks promising (Roof rack, C-track (2003-11 9-3 Sport Sedan), Saab USA Parts.com) but I'd like to know if any here have had any experience with it...
    The price is right but I can't find out anything about who is the original manufacturer. I DON'T want to pay Thule prices... they're nuts...
    Or maybe you know where I can find something similar and where I can get better information.

    Thanks for you help!!

    I believe the rack listed from Saab USA Parts is simply a Thule 400XTR.

    EDIT: I couldn't find anything proving that they are one in the same, but there is a post on another Saab forum stating that the 400XTR endcaps fit nicely.

    Thanks Shazam.
    I've tried getting more info from USA Parts... lets just say they're not very forthcoming.
    Oh well... keep on looking I guess!
