From what I can tell from the pics...

You will need the landing pads/towers(?) to connect the cross/load bars to the E. The basket part will fit once you have the load bars connected.

What it appears to have in the pic is the old gutter channel towers that will not work on the E.

Basically the bars and the basket will work. Go online to Thule.com and build a rack for your E to see what exact parts you need.

I'd guess early '90s on the rack & basket...sorry don't know the model #. However, I do have a tip in regards to the basket: if you remove it from the bars, wrap it (side rail to side rail) with a tie-down or some other strap to keep the basket from twisting once it's off the bars. Otherwise , the crossbars might separate from the side rails.
When the basket is mounted to the bars (on the car), it's a very sturdy system. I've used this same one with a full-size stroller strapped to it.
