Hi I have a set for sale which type do you have Msport or Se as they are different for each car? Msport has flush rails, Se raised rails.

Whereabouts are you? I have a set of Whispbar Aero-X bars in the shed:

Not OEM, but they're a lot lower profile (and therefore quieter) than most other styles of bar. No idea if they'll work with low profile rails - I've only used them with raised rails and don't really know what the low profile ones look like.

Why the prejudice against non oem roof  rack ?
I always check out the opposition on non critical items (I know r racks need to be fit for purpose), but you can save a bomb if researched correctly.

Fair point mate, i guess its because I dont have a great deal of time to do the research so normally buy oem as it does the trick (lazyness!!) but open to other suggestions

All mine are Thule which look awfully like OEM, but cheaper.

I was going to mention this. BMW don’t design or make roof racks. Any ‘genuine’ BMW rack will be a rebadged model from a well known manufacturer such as Thule, with a hefty price premium.

Guys, iv read online the se and msport roofbars are the same apart from the gripping feet, can these be changed? Would se bars fit an msport?

If you buy the Thule ones then yes.  Their roof bars can have any of a number of foot packs chosen depending upon your roof rail type.  Have a look at roofracks dot co dot Uk.  Lots of choices and all cheaper than OEM
