#45 of 53 Spectra5 Roof Rack
Jul 08, 2008 (10:39 am)
I am looking to have a roof rack installed on my 2007 Spectra5. Does anyone have this installed or does anyone know of a place that has images of this. It has to be pictures of the Spectra5.
I want to see what it looks like before I purchase it. I am looking for the one that is actually drilled into the roof installed. not the one that clips to the door frame.
Thanks for your help

I've got a 2006 and am also looking for a hitch. When you say the holes on the curtis model don't line up, could they be redrilled to fit? I don't mind doing a little machine work up to and including a bit of welding if the hitch can be made to fit without major mods.

I was looking to add a hitch to my Spectra5 for a bike rack (I don't want a roof rack). Has anyone found one that will fit the Spectra5?

Does anyone know where I can get performance upgrades and mods for my car. Looking for Cold Air Intake and Cat back or full header exhausts.. I know the dealer offers a lowering kit for it. I may have them do it to maintain the factory warranty but it would run me like 800$ to have them do it when you include the labor and parts..
My car is a 2008 Spectra 5.
Thanks in advance

I know this is an old post...I don't know if it'll get a response, but here goes:
You say you're missing your front spoiler, how did you come to not have it? Was it there when you bought the car? I ask because I'm thinking of removing mine. I think I like the '07s without it better and I am (perhaps naively) thinking that without it the car might be more aerodynamic and get slightly better mileage. Anyway, I'm afraid that it's there to direct air through the radiator. Have you had any problems with overheating? If you had it before and lost it somehow, did your gas mileage change at all?
I called a some dealerships and have gotten different responses about taking it off. A couple said it'd be fine to take it off and a few said it was necessary to leave it on. I don't know if the couple just aren't aware of the potential problem or if the few are just trying to cover their rear-ends.
Anyway, any help from anyone who has dealt with this would be much appreciated. Oh yeah, if I end you taking it off and deciding I don't need it we can maybe work out a deal.
