No worries man! Sweet looking rack nonetheless. Have you ever looked under the pads to see if it has done anything to the paint?

That is not the Oe Rack from my understanding, unless BMW has two versions. Here is mine. It does not touch the paint and mounts with two locating points per corner.

Just FYI, you have my dream car (although you can hold the supercharger)

Haha yea, well I would hope I wouldn't run into any situations where I would need to strap a girl to my roof.

Does anybody actually have a picture of an E36 coupe with an OEM rack on it, though?

On real OEM, they only have a PN for the new rack.

I bought mine used on Ebay several years ago. I can attach or disconnect it in a matter of minutes and it fits in the trunk nicely.
