    ps - what do you think of their ‘hang-two’ setup? it looks like with the hulaport the boards are on their sides?

    i can’t wait to get my new car! they think it will arrive in june!
    i currently have a 2002 wrx hatch with 107 K that i am going to sell, and it has yakima strap thang on the roof which has worked great, but as i mentioned it puts strain on the rear window frame.

    BTW i like your videos… the yakima on my current car (2002 wrx hatch) puts pressure on the rear window seal because of where the clip on the q tower goes. i like the look of the set up on ‘mammal’s ‘ car above, so i guess i may order the stock oem’s.

    Thanks man you gotta subscribe to my build thread!

    To be honest, everyone has been telling me about those but I have yet to see them in action yet lol. I love my Hulaports. Super easy to setup and I like that they fold down.

    You ordered a 13??? Sorry I'm to lazy to read back 10 comments hahahaha

    Yep!!! Can’t wait! It’s dark gray metallic, short throw, fog lights, and a few other add ons. I’ll probably opt for the crossbars then since they look good on your car. Didn’t want a sun roof so I didn’t get the premium

    Nice man! I had a premium 11 sedan and the only thing I really liked was the heated seats and wipers. Other than that the sunroof was barely used because I had my rack setup on it and the wind noise was horrible. Yes I read the warning sticker on the crossbar but I wanted to see what subaru was talking about.. LOL

    The only time my factory crossbars made noise was when I opened the sunroof. Subaru does not recommend that you should open your sunroof with the crossbars for that very reason. I can honestly say that after getting my inno fairing I have next to no wind noise. Before installing the fairing I had a lot of whisping and whistling with the Hullaports on my oem crossbars.
