I like my Yakima rack. It holds on solid; I was on the highway, 4 boards on it, with a 15 mph head wind with an 80mph speed limit. The thing never even budged.

I bought a Thule rack last fall from ORS and love it. Price and shipping was awesome and rack works great!

I got a yakima rack for our impreza wagon (2002). Went with the factory style mounts rather than the side clamps and all that shit. Like this > Yakima Control Tower - Yakima Factory Mount Towers

Seems good. Really solid and clean looking.

Looking to get a fairing still...

The new all black aerodynamic looking Yakima that holds the 4 snowboards looks better than the boxy grey Thule ... I just purchased Yakima 3 weeks ago and all it came down to was looks...

I have a yakima rack for my car (it's the only popular brand that fit it). It fits and holds well, but I take it off my car during the summer (unless I need it for my bike rack) because I noticed it started to wear the gloss on my paint job. Two thumbs up for the rack's functionality, but don't make it a permanent feature on your car...

If i order that exact one, will i have to buy anything else? Or does it come with everything?

You cant go wrong with Yakima or Thule, my friends and I all bought Yakima so that everything was interchangeable. Before you buy go to the Yakima website and write down all of the part numbers for the set up you're looking, then enter it on Craigslist, you will save 100's

You need control towers, landing pads, load bars and snowboard/ski clamps.

You'll have to do some research into what will fit your year of subie... or go to the shop and make them do it for you :thumbsup:

I got some of my gear 2nd hand off craigslist, and the landing pads from rackattack. It took a while rounding it all up, but I saved a bunch of cash.
