    Ok so I'm a bit behind the times here but perhaps someone can enlighten me as to what the whole roof rack on e46s thing is all about?. I've seen a few modded E46, mostly 4 doors with these roof racks. Is there a reason? (Other than the obvious benefits of load carrying). Have I missed...

    On the inside where you'd normally see an interior light there's like a little box with vents, I'm guessing this is for the air con? Secondly there's vents at the back window too? Is that a fan for the windows like the front? Surely not as its got a demister anyway? Sorry if these are silly...
