Recommended Roof Rack for 1995 BMW 8 Series


Hey there i having problem finding a roof rack for my 8 series , i mean i did found couple options but all of them require modifications , so i was wondering if there is any roof rack assy u have in stock that will bolt on or at least some base brackets that will let me install universal roof rack , if i need to i can send you dimensions. Thank you and looking forward to hear from you guys as soon as possible.

The only roof rack system we have available that is confirmed to work on your 1995 BMW 8 Series is the SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack # 298-SX6000B. This is a unique system that uses 6 vacuum cups to mount the crossbars to the roof of the vehicle. These are heavy-duty vacuum cups that actually have a pull strength rating of 210 pounds (per cup!). The weight capacity of the roof rack itself is 150 pounds.

It looks like the relative small size of your BMW's roof is what is preventing standard clamp style roof racks from fitting correctly, which is why there aren't any available for the vehicle.

I have attached a video demonstration on the SeaSucker system so you can see exactly how it installs and operates.
