The Thule Car Rack Fairing is the crowning point of the Thule system. It not only nearly eliminates all wind noise, but it also grants better gas mileage, and an opportunity to show where you've been by providing a place for you to put stickers collected on your various outings.
We have Hullivators and the installation would have to be modified to work with it. We didn't notice a dramatic difference with or without it so ended up not using it.
I am very satisfied with the Thule Fairing. There is definitely a huge noise difference on my 04 Accord. The only thing that has happened to me that was most unfortunate is that the two of the pads (goes between the fair and your car's surface) have come off already and this creates some annoying noise. I am pretty sure it was more of an environmental thing than a fault from Thule. I had just put the faring on and two days later drove 10 hours in rain, which was made without an issue. However shortly after I returned (another 10 hour trip) the car and subsequently the fairing, encountered freezing weather which is where I suspect the pads didn't have chance for proper adherence. Either way I would get another one in the future. Lastly, the shipping from Austin Kayak was very fast.
package came on time. The fairing fit great and looks great too.
