    08 or 09 WRX factory Rack

    anyone have the factory rack for an 08 or 09?

    I was going to use my 20% coupon to get one, but I was told they are really noisy. Anyone notice it or is it just like any other rack?

    probably just as noisy as any other rack. My guess as to why they are more noticeable on the new body style is the improved cabin noise reduction. The old chassis was known for being rather loud inside.

    Can you get a fairing for the factory rack? I have a Yakima rack and the fairing helps considerably to reduce the noise.

    I have one, it is ridiculously noisy. The vibration is so loud and pronounced, that it sounds like it may damage the roof, or the rack may come off or something. It is awful.

    I just put the rack on my 2008 STI. You hear the wind noise above 60 and gets worse at 80+. I wonder if the car will go airborne...LOL I must say that these cars do not have much sound suppression. What this car needs is moore dynomat or something like this product to help. I will eventually do this on the floor. I also thought about removing it when I am not using it. Let me know what you all think.
