    Wind noise?

    Hey guys,

    Im new to the forums and Subaru's in general. I just bought a 2011 wrx and was wondering what everyone is doing about the horrible wind noise from the roof rack. It is bolted into the roof and was not looking to have body work done. Anyone have any quick fixes? Thanks for any help.

    A wind fairing will help.

    For testing purposes: try a long strip of card board and duct tape, stick to front of rack across roof,
    sorta like: /[ ]
    That would be the fairing as said above...
    If that cuts the noise, I suspect it will, then go looking for something like that in a more permanent material
    You can't have everything - where would you put it?

    Its not permanent. There are mounting points built into the roof rails that allow you to remove it at will. Nobody work necessary.

    Or this. Fairings help tremendously. Or get a CBE. The sexy exhaust noise will drown out the wind noise!
