Great system, but like previous reviewer, you need to purchase additional items for full setup:

460 R (4 footpacks) ~174.95 MSRP
ARB 47" (2 bars) ~149.95 MSRP
4019 Fit Kit ~74.95 MSRP
Thule 544 Lock ~54.95 MSRP (optional, if want to lock the set-up so it's parking lot safe. 1 key for all 4 locks)

Total = ~454.80

the 460R Aero bars (ARB) have a new design that looks more aerodynamic than the original 460R (teardrop profile vs oval). The original 460R are d/c but some places (like amazon) are still selling out old stock, so be careful to get the right footpacks and other attachments to match! The 460 (without the 'R', which indicates a more rapid fit) are square.

The 47" bars above are the ones I got and they fit the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee which already has flush factory rails (get the 480R if your roof is bare). you may need different length depending on your vehicle size.

I chose the Thule 460R over the similar Yakima mounting system just based on looks. I know that's bad, but I liked the aero bars from Thule better than the round Yakima bars. Personal taste though, right? As for the actual 460R mounting pack, they were easy to install and setup. They're solid and fit the car snugly. My only suggestion is to also buy the locking system that goes along to help keep your investment from being stolen.

Be careful when you buy this items here; there are no specs for what tpe of Bar will or will not fit. I had to refer to the Thule website just to make sure I was ordering for every part to fit. Also when you buy these you have to order a Foot Kit which is not mentioned here either.
All in all great item but be make sure you're buying everything you need to put everything together on your specific car model. Oh! and make sure you get some locks cause they do not come with the foot packs either!

These podium feet are short and sturdy. It uses lug and nut to secure, unlike some OEM ones with clamps. This means more hassle if you plan to have it on and off often. The clearance from the bar is a tight 2 to 2 3/4" inches, which allows my car to enter garage with roof box on top. You also want to make sure your sunroof slides open all the way after installation. Make sure you also get their wind deflector.

Very easy to install and very secure. I attached it to a Mazda without any problems in about 15 minutes.

Folks,

So I was like, sure let me get this, there was no mention of what else you need. I bought it the roof rack and learned that I need the rapid podium from thule (this item), Well that was another $120, there was not mention about what else I would need. So I went ahead and ordered it. It arrived today -- to my surprise, you are still not done -- you still need the "FITKIT" (I guess this depends on your car, I have a Mazda CX-9) that is another $80 -- I just order the 3rd part. I hope that is it and I opted not to have the locks, I hope I will eventually get it installed. :(

BEWARE, DO YOUR RESEARCH!!!!

The threaded metal posts used to secure the Podiums to the vehicle have manufacturing flaws. The ends of two of the four metal posts we're miss-shaped, preventing the fit and use of any size Allen wrench (which is required for proper installation).

Overall, these are a great product if you understand what you are buying. I'm a little disappointed that the Thule website touted this as a package, but it was really just one piece of four. In my opinion, over priced plastic. The other pieces you will need are the locks (set of 4), the fit kit (can't fit them to your car without it) and the Aeroblade (cross bar). Together these can go well over $400, but the pieces themselves make it seem like it will be cheap compared to competitors. I'd shop around before being set on these, and factor in all the pieces that you are purchasing. Many competitors offer the entire base roof rack package for one lower price, then you can use the money you save to get the bike/surf/luggage rack piece.
