Re: Noisy Scenic Roof Bars

All square section roof bars will whistle at speed. At least I've never known a set that didn't. Ours always whistled when they were just the bars, but were happily silent when the roof box was on top of them.

The contoured bars (Thule Aero etc.) claim to be better, though I've no personal experience.

In any case, they're wasting fuel and therefore money when you don't have a load strapped to them. It would be better to take them off when you're not using them.
