Whoa wheres this at. I was just about to pull the trigger for a set but decided to hold off and do some more research when I saw your post. They're showing $459-$479 + $90 for a Fit Kit .

etrailer.com is the site. Not sure how long it'll last though.

Yakima just released new bars and mounts earlier this year and you can pick up their BaseLine towers, base clips, and JetStream bars for just under $400 before tax from REI during their annual sale. The JetStream bars aren't quite Whispbars but they are the close aerodynamic wise and I like how they stick out beyond the mounts. Mine should be in tomorrow hopefully!

Very happy with my whispbars. Had them for a few years now. Very quiet, rarely hear them. Only complaint is that I had to replace the rubber pads due to them cracking and breaking apart. Only $35 on Amazon so not too bad. I keep my rack on all the time though. Recently had my bars powder coated gloss black too.

How hard is it to remove any of these roof racks from a 2 door? I'm sick of chucking my bike in the boot but I don't want to have anything permanently installed. I personally think that all roof racks ruin the look of the GTI and will likely be installing and uninstalling after each use.

Very easy. My Thule has allen key adapters that came with it so it lets me install without any tools. The adapters are built into the mounting brackets. They also indicate how tight they need to be for proper mounting.

Maybe 10 mins tops to install the cross bars on the car.

Which paint protector you guy recommend for the install? I picked up a second hand whispbar rack, only thing missing is the sticker for install.
