Bought complete with stay kit for 2009 Honda Fit from ORS Racks. Overall, very satisfied with the rack. It's solid, well built, feels solid on my roof and leaves no sign that it was there after it's removed. It's a considerably better value than comparable Thule and Yakima racks.

The only downside is that the rubber feet have more of a universal-fit look, rather than 100% custom for the specific car. The rubber pads engage right where the roof has a small ledge and rubber strip (like most new cars). The pads sit snug against the roof, but they don't press right up against the ledge, leaving a visible vertical gap, especially in the front. The instructions clearly show the gap - if you move the towers outward to close up the gap, then the clamps won't engage correctly. I think Thule racks mount similarly on the Honda Fit, but I don't know if the Thule gives a more custom looking fit.

But as written already, the rack is solid and doesn't make any marks on my roof. That's far more important than the slight "universal" look to the way it mounts.
Also, a big 10 rating for ORS Racks. They were great to deal with and seem to have very competitive prices.
