I you can afford the towers then go to the hardware store and pick up some
round pipe. A friend of mine did that on his Japanese import.
I am using the Yakima Q towers and clips for my sedan. The towers are
$120(for 4) and clips are $24/pr, but it helps to have a connection to the bike
shop too. I'd check on MTBR.com for rack components for sale. Of course e-bay

I'd avoid anything generic. I've looked at the Performance Bike stuff and
some of it is good, but a bunch of it is trash. Look at them, their racks may
be ok. Just remember, the car is worth a quality rack. If you were in CA, I
have the 48" bars off the 4kq if you'd like to buy them.
