Agreed. Have to admit, wish I'd have held out for these. The OEMs stayed on for 48 hours- too much air noise for me. For Sale if any interest PM me.

So I ordered these Turtle bars off Ebay for $167 but, the seller said they had a supply issue and canceled my order. I'm now thinking about these other ones on Ebay for $129.99. It's not that I'm cheap but the Thule for 500 seems a bit high especially when I'll only use them 1-2 times per year to hold a cargo box. Anyone with cheapo Ebay crossbar experience?

Depending slightly on what you expect to carry I wouldnt go cheap. Imagine one releasing at 100 mph?

True! Probably wont be doing 100mph with a load but, it could happen. My 13 yr old duaghter busted me for doing 98mph with her Life360 app. Who knew she could track my speed.

Picked these up at Harbor Frieght for $55 after a 20% coupon for my wife's Rav4. Thought I would try them on the stelvio, they work. I can rock them back and forth a bit due to the rubber on the mounts but they feel solid. I cant imagine they could ever come loose. With nothing attached to them they do start to howl at around 45mph. I've had it up to 80 and the sound is about the same, nothing the radio volume doesn't fix. I still want a more sleek looking set that doesn't extend over the roof. I think these will fit my needs if I need to carry anything. $445 less then the Thule.
