When I use the Thule Matchmaker on the website and select the Rapid Aero system it automatically chooses the 43" Rapid Aero bars for me. There are 2 other choices, one being the 47". I would assume the 43" bars fit flush with the feet and no other parts stick out. Would it be possible to fit the 47" on my car? It's a 2003 Civic 4dr.

Thanks!

What do you mean fit flush? They are quiet sticking out. The mounting part, however, has limited length(approx 10", if I'm not mistaken) and longer bars may not fit. I suggest you go and ask thule customer support, they are very helpful. There is a chance a 47" may fit your car, if mounting section of a bar is long enough.
Here is a pic of my Impreza with 47" bars. Your civic is not too much different in dimensions(Impreza width is 68.5, Civic is 67.7)

Might work.

I ordered the rack through my store today and got the 43" bars. We'll see how it goes
