Default Rack for my LR3, Baja, OEM, Voyager, or ProSpeed. Anyone interested in a group buy?

Heya, I have a 05 LR3 in Adriatic Blue. Im looking to add a expedition style rack to it. Id like this to be a fairly streamline rack, that fits the profile of the vehicle, fairly versatile, and can easily have driving lamps mounted upon.
From what I can find, these are the most popular rack choices.

Baja Rack
Baja Rack
Im not a fan of the logo on the front of the wind visor, and Im not sure about how easy it is to mount lights on this.
Seems to be very versatile. Have heard great things about it.

Land Rover OEM/G4 Rack
Land Rover Expedition Roof Rack Assy LR3 LR4 CAB500021PMA | eBay
I cant find this rack for sale anywhere except for eBay, and once in a while, on sale on a forum by a private user.
I hear these are very heavy and bulky, but I do like the looks of this one.
WELL over priced.

ProSpeed Rack
D4 Landmark with ProSpeed Rack | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
Not too pricey, not loud, doesnt affect MPG, light mount coming in future
Located in England, shipping would be very expensive for me

Voyager Rack
Land Rover Discovery Series 3 LR3 LR4 Roof Racks
https://landroverforums.com/forum/ap...c...cks-47079/
Located in Florida, fast shipping to me, reasonably priced, free ladder ( I think?), discounts offered, streamline, light mountable
Reports of rust, poor weld quality.

What would you guys choose if you were in my position?
Id like something for just all around use, nothing specific.

I am located in America(NYC specifically) so international shipping is another factor. Id prefer to get something stateside, but if I cant agree with myself on something, Il look to the other continents.
If there is anyone that is interested in the ProSpeed, we can possibly do a groupbuy. If we get 5 people, they offer a 10% discount
Pricing for the ProSpeed is as followed.
ProSpeed Discovery 3&4 roof rack (glass roof version): 732.50 GBP

Shipping to NJ: 320 GBP


ALSO:
My LR3 has the glass roof, and the fin antenna on the roof.
Id like the sunroof to be operational after the rack install, but this isnt a requirement.

Holy buckets... :O

That's like $1600 bucks.

Well, I have a BajaRack on my DII, and they are fantastic. The welds are good quality, and the coating is very durable. It actually wouldn't be too difficult to get rid of that logo. Got a big Philips screwdriver? The wind deflector comes off with 8 screws. Take it off and have it re-coated.

You can use them for anything, they're bombproof.

Oh, and the lights. If you look under "Accessories" on their site, you'll find various light bars. I'd be willing to bet you could mount one to your rack.

Just my $0.02

They all look nice. I'd be looking for feedback on wind noise.
I've got a Land Rover Expedition Rack, Not too noisy IMO, except
All the plastic rail riser covers rattled on it, I had to secure them with silicone.
Lamp installation is not a simple bolt on. I don't recall a lamp kit being available thru Land rover.
The others seem to have lots of accessory options that may better suit you.
In the grand scheme of things.. Whats $1600.00??
You spend that much for cell phone service a year.

Yeah, pretty much heh.
Have you mounted lights on your rack?

The price for the ProSpeed would be cheaper but Id have to organize a group buy =/

I do not have lights mounted to mine. A few years back I did mount
4 lamps on one. It was more effort than it was worth at a dealer level and IMO it didnt come out that nice. It looked good from a distance but you could see the mounting "mess" through the sunroof when you looked up.

Makes me wonder if it was like that when they mounted it for the G4 challenge cars.
