Got My Thule Rack Installed, Mini Photo Shoot, Pic Heavy!

I finally got my Thule roof rack that I have been drooling over for a while now. It is always such a pain in the butt to put all the snowboards in the car but now I can just throw them on the rack! I just finished fine tuning it today so I decided to wash the car as well and have a little mini photo shoot. Ignore my front chin spoiler, the paint has been chiping and I'm going to just strip it and leave it black... I also just installed some basic Rally Armor mud flaps not too long ago. I absolutely love the sporty/rally look the car has now. So now I'm set and ready for the snow! So take a gander and tell me what you think, enjoy the eye candy!

Damn that is a sweet ride. Is the rack difficult to install? I don't know anything about them.

hows the wind noise with the snowboard rack attached and the aero bars? I have the same snowboard rack but sitting on top of square bars, the wind noise was annoying before i got my fairing.


Looks good, I havent put mine back on yet. I took off the entire rack in fall when i took off my bike mounts. I'm waiting until our little hill of a mountain opens up before i put it back on. It is really nice not having to store two boards in the car, free's up so much more room.

I really want a roof rack for the subi since it is a sedan and doesn't have folding rear seats. I can't fit a board in the car and have to rely on my fiance's Forester which is ok but it is an automatic and I prefer my manual.

Not hard at all, its fairly straight forward. Only took me about 45 min to get it on, but im a perfectionist and made sure everything was perfectly even, lol.

The aero bars are awsome! I was concerned about the wind noise too, thats why I just spent the extra $ and went with the aero bars. I am pleased to say there is barely any wind noise at all, even with the actual snowboard mounts on. At freeway speeds there is a slight noise but I barely notice it. I am always listening to music/radio so I dont hear anything when im jammin out lol.
