OEM Base Support System vs Yakima/Thule

Calling all outdoorsy people - I need some advice.

I need to get a roof rack and wanted to know if the OEM ones are noisy without a fairing (as is) or if the aero ones that the top brands like Yakima or Thule are worth the 2x price tag.

Also - if anyone is selling one let me know! I need it asap!

Thanks!

OEM rack isn't too noisy... noise was loud when i was doing 85+mph w/ 4 snowboards on my OEM base support rack with snowboard holders.

Also, i love the look of the OEM base support system. great resale value as well. you can just get the thule fairing and put it on the OEM base rack...

I have this for sale/trade... if you're interested in these, maybe we can work out something w/ the racks as well.
