It's a Yakima Q Tower on an Audi A6...

As you'll see, one clip fits decently to the profile of the door frame, the other not so much. I readjusted and now both are not totally perfect, but when I give both a decent pull (when closed) they don't budge either, so am I being too much of a perfectionist and should not worry? The way it was in the picture, one clip budged a hair.

Good fit... Front driver side...

Not so perfect fit... Front passenger side...

Whatever you decide, I'd check the tightness of the straps FREQUENTLY...

i'd send the pics to Yakima directly and get their opinion. i've heard they have good customer service with these kind of things.
