I got the OEM cross bars. Reason- I know the fitment will be perfect to the roof line and the shape is an airfoil which beats the Yakima round bars and Thule. You'll be paying a lot more for the Whispbars and the fitment may not be as good. Then I'm getting the Inno medium fairing because again, fitment is perfect. Finally, Yakima rack accessories for the bike and snowboards. Yes, I did a lot of homework on the forums. My 2 cents.
