    Default Subaru Roof Rack System vs. Yakima System

    Hi All,

    I have a 2007 WRX Wagon with factory rails on it. Looking to build out a roof rack system with bike & ski attachments.

    I've had a Yakima system before on other cars, and always thought it added a lot of wind noise, even with a fairing and wind jammer.

    I have priced out ordering all Subaru parts vs. Yakima parts, and the Subaru system actually seems to be cheaper, but will it hold up to Yakima, or Thule standards? There are def less options with the Subaru system then if I go full Yakima. hmmm.

    Also, do you think the flat Subaru cross bars will help reduce wind noise vs. getting a Yakima kit and round cross bars?

    Any thoughts greatly appreciated!

    Default WRX 2011 roof rack

    I have the Subaru stock rack and I like it. It's quiet, relatively strong and looks pretty good and shouldn't rust as its made of aluminium.I haven't bought any attachments for it yet and my Sport Rack 13 l ski box will have to be replaced as it is to long for the hatchback.
    I like some of the Yakima box's I have seen on other cars so may look into one of them.

    I think Thule are pretty good racks as i have owned a couple, however the bars will rust out after about 6 years.
    Sport Rack is made by Thule and costs half the price, the only drawback with them is that not as many vehicles work with them, or at least it so apears because quite often its only the bar length that is the problem , but a hack saw can fix that issue.
    I have the Subaru rack on my 2011 WRX and really like it so far, although I haven't checked out the price on adapters for the toys yet.
