I tried the Yakima, was gonna try the Thule, but it looks like the Inno is the easiest way to go.

Ok I keep forgetting to take a pic I'll get it on here one of these days. But if you look at the mighty mounts it'll prob help you understand. I took a 2 1/2" pipe and cut a 1" strip so now I have a 1" wide 2 1/2 diameter piece and cut through one side so I could bend it into the shape of the mighty mount with it fitting around the oem bar with about 3/4" hanging off. Drilled a hole through that part and attached the tray.

Prob just confused you...

K I'm hoping these will work. Doing it from my iPhone so we'll see. But in the first one you can see where the metal piece came together and I bolted it through into the the tray. In the 2nd one you can see how it wraps around the bar. In the 3rd is how I bolted it up to the rear bar using the xadapt9 kit. Hope this helps

They are actually not all the same. 08 and 09 have a channel in them that if you pull off the end cap you can access and use a system such as thule's xadapt9 to mount bike trays however the 2010 model racks don't have that channel and like I said I haven't seen the 2011 ones

Yea they're the same aero shape, the channel is the only difference which I didn't know until I went to mount my bike tray.

The Inno fairings will mount to the aero bars and the medium sized one is the absolute perfect fit for them despite inno's recommendation of small. If you look back a few pages you can see how I Mcgyver'd one to fit.

Looking for suggestions, 2011 WRX, I'm looking into getting the OEM bars and the Inno fairing. Is there any way to adjust, move the fairing closer down towards the windshield, I have a nasty ripple I'm trying to cover up and all the pics with the Inno fairing look like they might partially cover it.

Other brands that would allow for fairing to almost meet top of windshield? Any suggestions other than getting it fixed, yes I know that's what I should do.... thanks

There really isn't too much adjustment in the Inno front to back. Left and right, ya... but not much more than that.

Got my rack done this weekend, just in time to bike DC during hurricane Irene.

I used the old modified Q7 clip trick and it worked like a charm. couldnt be happier with the results

That's the Thule 555 fairing.
Apparently (I have not confirmed this however) you can call Thule direct and request one and they will sell it to you.

And of course something like eBay or craigslist will probably be your best bet since these are discontinued.
