Is your soon to be car a sport model with the roof rails or are you talking about the 'factory cross bars' that mount to the little spots under the gutter trim? If it's the latter, they actually are very aerodynamic, I don't notice any extra wind noise, and i have yet to see a negative effect on my mpg's. No fairing, just the cross bars and my 2 yakima forklifts. hope it helps your decision.
