After reading around I finally narrowed it down to a Thule 1600 or a Yakima blacktop 16s, I decided on the Thule. 1.) the floor inside was a bit simpler, flatter, cleaner. 2.) The unit had a better finished look ... sat lower, silver color, looks cool, shorter (as to not cover the entire sunroof. 3.) lighter weight I should note that the hook that actually clamps to the rack that comes with the Yakima looks nicer, but the Thule has a very simple/basic design that also works very well and is very simple. job. took about 5 minutes or so ... damn easy.
