Thanks for sharing this picture - it is really helpful.Dealer is offering to install OEM but would send it out to a body shop to have the work done. I am skeptical about this approach. I am worried that this may void some parts of the manufacturer warranty as it looks like it is at least 8 holes to be drilled from the roof into the cabin. Any thoughts?

With regards to warranty, if your dealer has approved the work, but doesn’t have capability or capacity to do it, get it in writing and it won’t be a problem.
Looks like the shop will need to drop the headlining to get to the nuts on the underside which is a shame to pull a part a brand new car, and sounds expensive! I wonder if this will involve air bags and electrical work .
I’m not sure whether to cancel my order and wait for a deal on a XSE, or go with and get some seasucker monkey bars, I didn’t realise how much of a dealbreaker it would be for me especially as I only use the bars 3-5 times a year.
