Hi - Just picked up a new xc60 and need to add roof bars.

We already have some thule wing bars and a 757 footpack and know that we can switch these to the XC60 by buying the Thule 753 footpack and fitting kit HOWEVER ..... the Thule footpack is higher than the Volvo original foot pack and also the Thule footpack does not have any protective rubber on the clamps which attach to the rails (whereas the volvo ones do) and Im concerned about rubbing/scratching as it would be Thule footpack metal onto Volvo Roofrail metal.

So here is the question - If I buy a set of original Volvo rails (square profile) with Volvo OEM foot pack (they are about 40 used on ebay) - can I attach my Thule wingbars to them ??????

All help appreciated !!
