Roof bar

I’m looking for a very low roof bar (to mount a ski rack on). Did anyone find a good option already?

The Land Rover roof bar is likely too high (I’m
Parking in Manhattan garages)...

I'am working at the moment to modify the Thule Edge Wingbar 9595 ( M +L), the set 3040 sits in my opinion to high.
I want to bring it back to 2"

( If you have the roof rails..)

That looks interesting, do you have any photos of them fitted to the car?

What I can from the photos you made a slightly smaller bracket and replaced the rubber “adapter” with thin layer of rubber or there are some other modification too? 3.0L MHVE D200 S Pangea Green+Black Pack

I made a new bracket, basicly the same size as the Thule. Drilled the 2 holes almost 9 or 10mm lower.
Sorry no pictures mounted, awaiting on my 90.
Next step when mounted is to shave the side covers so they will sit neat and look good.
