    I've given Xicutioner the first dibs on my complete setup since he posted here first. If he passes I'll go down the list of PMs that I've received in order.

    The RS is one of the most practical cars for active people - hatchback, AWD, 4 doors - and auto enthusiasts. IMO seeing WRX/STIs and RSs with roof racks and bikes/snowboards is awesome.
    Add a trailer hitch to that statement...and it's FULL WIN!

    My Thule rack is on...pics tomorrow when it's clean. Did a 600 mile round trip beer run today, car is embedding itself in my soul after just 2600 or so miles. Got the winter wheelset, the rockblokz guards...just need some winter mats and I'm good to go for now.

    For those of you still trying to decide which way to go on the roof racks or just looking for more information, I followed @jlange 's advice and started searching amazon uk for their Thule parts. I also looked into the manuals for the Thule fit kit for the Focus and made some measurements using my 47" AeroBlade from my FiST.

    If you don't like the overhanging look of the 53" bars you can go smaller! I purchased 50" aeroblades and mounted them no problem. I believe you could go as low as 47" aeroblades, but I can't say this for sure.

    I bought Black 50" Aeroblades from amazon at the link below. They are currently listed at 101.03 GBP, but once you go to check out the price drops to 84.19 GBP. For some reason the global prioity shipping (22.58 GBP) is cheaper on the aeroblade than the global standard shipping (28.93 GBP). All in that's $137.83 using 1 GBP = 1.2908717452 USD (includes all Amazon fees and charges). It's possible if you change the currency you pay in to GBP that you could pay a lower exhange rate (closer to the 1GBP = 1.25USD) to avoid the amazon fees.

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    I also used amazon uk for the fitkit in the link below. IMO this is the best fitkit for the RS because it has the nipple thingys for the mounting holes on our cars. Plus the manual has the RS in the instructions and surprisingly the mounting distances between the towers on the same bar is slightly different. It's listed at 32.12 GBP but like the aeroblades once you go to checkout the price drops to 26.77 GBP. If you order the fit kit and aeroblades together the price with global priority shipping (24.17 GBP, standard is 32.68 GBP) will amount to 135.13 GBP or $174.44 using amazon's exchange with fees.

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    I wish I had ordered mine together, because it isn't cheaper to get global priority shipping for just the fitkit like it is for the aeroblades. Right now it's 12.74 GBP for global standard shipping and 22.58 GBP for global priority. Even at that I saved 50% off the US retail price with global shipping included. Compare USD retail price of the aeroblades and the fitkit to getting them on amazon uk and you're looking at $300 retail to $175 amazon about 42% savings.

    I don't see any reason to buy the traverse foot pack on amazon. It looks like it'll just cost you more.

    If you're looking for the lock sets though, those are significantly cheaper on amazon uk as well.

    Keeping mine. Trick is not to crank it down too much when installing it. Same set up on my wife's Mini. Not worried.
