Potentially interested. Any close-ups with what you were able to fit onto your ti in place? I guess I would need to check to make sure that I can get the bolts out on my car (wife takes it to work). I have the cali top so the pics would help me visualize if it'll fit without any issues.

I have taken a picture of the front foot and two pics from the thule instruction sheet. They explain it better than anything.
Basically, you pull back the rubber above the opened doors on either side and you will find two bolts on each side.
You will need only one bolt on each side to connect to the thule foot. I wanted either both fronts or both backs to connect to. I got the front one on one side and the back one on the other side out, but I could not get either of the other ones out.
So you should check and make sure you can get the bolts out. Either the front ones on both sides, or the back ones on both sides.
The load bars are not included, you would still need to purchase those.

I don't think the bolts come out or even need to be loosened. I believe the mount (fit kit) goes over the outer bolt head (for lack of a better word) of the front bolt on the car and then is pulled up and bolts/connects to the foot. This (imho) is what the instructions are showing. It would be nice if they had some damn words there to explain it along with the pictures.

Is the hole in the fit kit for the front position on the car big enough to go over the bolt (that's part of the car)? It's hard to tell from the photo. If so, then I think your kit works and will fit on your car fine. I really don't believe those bolts are meant to come out. I tried and was only able to do a partial turn. I looked at my stock BMW mounts and they just slide into place and then have a set screw to lock them into place. It would seem Thule is likely doing something similar.

The back mount appears to just be a lip that goes underneath the rear frame (just above the rear window). This is also similar to the stock BMW mount.

Do you want to try fitting it to your car again? I'm guessing it will fit/work.

If you still want to sell them, I'd would like to purchase them.

Gee how embarrassing.
You are absolutely correct. They do not have to come out.
I never even tried to just fit them over.
I have a thule rack on my truck now, so I will not be using my bmw for hauling stuff anyway.
So yes, it is still for sale.
I have the bike carriers also that fit on the load bars. Let me know if you are interested in these.
The bike carriers are a bit beat up as I had them on a Mazda Mx-3 for many years.

Thank god! I've been sitting on mine waiting for yours to sell If anyone else wants a set, I have the same Thule fit kit 225 like new in the box that I'll let go for $140 shipped. Yeah I know I'm asking more than the OP but this kit has long been discontinued, Thule racks are way better than the flimsy and cheap looking factory rack and it may be several years before you see another one for sale. PM me if anyone's interested.

Edit; Sold! Thanks Rich, sent it out yesterday via priority mail, you should get it tomorrow.
