Rhino rack RABP series is listed for our cars, but their listings are off. I ordered an SXB4 crossbar setup as this was listed to fit the 05 forester with similar rails to our cars.

Turns out the SXB4 is designed for a raised rail and won't work out at all. Though it is a beautiful rack.

After a lot of back and fourth with customer service (they're really great over there btw) I've decided that the SXB2 looks like it will actually fit, and is listed to fit the flush railed forester in AU, which should match our cars rails too.

Unfortunately I've given up my search for some cool Aero racks, and I'm moving forward with standard OEM Mont Blanc square bars that I got on here for a good deal. I'm just sick of waiting.

If anyone is feeling like going Rhino Rack I believe with reasonable certainty that the SXB2's would be the rack to go with.

Just an FYI, I know some of you guys are in my shoes looking for something that is aero and nice instead of boring round or square bars.
