Default Roof Racks In The Winter

Hey now,
So I'm sure the question of how an E9X M car does in the snow has been asked and answered at great length, but my question is a bit different. I'm wondering what the general consensus is on roof racks on E9X M cars. It's my opinion that the E46 M3 with a roof rack, parked in the lot of a Ski resort up in the mountains looks freaking awesome, it seems natural like if it were in the Alps.

Do you need roof racks? If so, then put them on. If not, then don't. Seems pretty simple to me. If you are putting them on because it looks cool then

Well not only the winter, basically in general. I have a strap on Thule trunk bike rack, but I'm not sure if I should go all the way and get a roof rack. Yes it's much more convenient for hauling around equipment, but is rather not put it on if it takes away from the aesthetics. It's more of a sacrifice style for practicality question.

Put it on when you need it, take it off when you don't. Roof racks look stupid on everything, but sometimes you need one. Thats the whole point of it.
