I don't mind the overhang but you can just buy shorter bars. The BMW branded ones are overpriced ... what isn't from BMW? My brother has the BMW branded roofbars and he ended up having to buy additional T-Track adapters to fit his Thule gear to the bars. It's just an extra expensive I can do without.
It's criminal that BMW sells a 460 ltr roofbox for £605! Get a Thule one for about 60% of the price.
