I was talking to the dealer the other day and there is only like 3 OEM Votex Roof Rack baskets left in the country! Unfortunately none of them are no where near me! What part from Votex would I need to fit the OEM rack? I would really like a basket (for dirty junkyard parts and such) but what do I need to get?

You need the base bars that go across the the roof first; then the basket attaches to those.

Re: Votex Roof Rack Baskets (bluefox280)

I have the base bars themselves. Supposedly a Thule basket for other applications is a direct fit, from what I've read. Trying to find more specific answers.

the OEM basket will come with the necessary hardware to fit the OEM Votex rack.
The Thule MOAB comes with universal mounting clamps that should fit (call thule to confirm)

If Thule makes a basket for another application that will fit the OEM bars. Basically, if I can go somewhere local, and buy a basket to put on my rack.

votex basket will fit, or you can order this one from ecs http://www.ecstuning.com/Volks...99378/
it will fit too but might not look as good

This is a good option. I might go with this, contemplating if I should paint the bars and basket black. The aluminum/black plastic looks kind hideous in my opinion.

i completely agree, it doesnt look very good in aluminum at all.
i think painting will look a lot better

I thought the color looks pretty decent on a silver car.
But anyways, ECS has 'em in stock. Crazy discount clearance too.
