Long version - I tried the Yakima racks for a while but they were chewing up my door seals.
After a bunch of un-productive calls with various Lexus dealers, I ran across a guy here who got me the rails from Japan. They are color matched to the car (factory blue).

They've seen lots of surfboards, mountain bikes, moving a few beds, etc.
They bolt into the stock mounts.
The bolts come with some kind of silicone sealant, so far no water has come in.

I'm very happy with them - well worth the expense.

Quite a few sportcross owners are interested in them so anything information you can provide would be appreciated.

Hi Nougatti & Curran,
I had to dig back into my history on my.is to find this.

Way back when, this page: LEXUS SportCross

was where I ordered them.
It says they are discontinued now but you might start there.
I tried a few times with them before I got a response.

Maybe someone who specializes in JDM parts?

Here's the original thread I posted
https://my.is/forums/f102/has-anyone-...rtcros-131418/

Good luck!!

Do you happen to have the part numbers for these by chance?

sorry HapaKid,
No idea what the part number was.

Maybe a search for a Gita parts catalogue??

Best of luck!
