The Rhino system was easy to install, looks good, and worked well.

Mounted to an INNO base rack system that I purchased on AA as well. Very solid feel to the rack though I think the Ubolts could have had a better design, they are hard to hand tighten. Makes a good bit of wind noise at 70MPH+, but it's a roof basket it's expected. Used for hauling spare offroad tire/wheel.Also (not pictured) has an army shovel for looks. Helps keep the weight centered in the car which is helpful when sliding around on trails and dirt tracks. Looks pretty tough on an old e34

I read several reviews of the Sidekick before I bought it. I found the comments to ring true during a recent 6 day whirlwind trip with mine. It is small (a little smaller than I expected) and feels a little flimsy during assembly, but I must say it performed well - didn't leak during very heavy rain, didn't move at speed (even with a cross wind) and didn't appear to have a negative effect on mileage. One comment by others that I must emphasize - It definately takes two people to assemble and install. Its not difficult, just cumbersome. Once its on, its good to go and go and go. If you don't need a lot of extra space the sidekick should serve you well. I'm glad I bought mine.
