Noise with a roof box fitted

Has anyone experience of having a roof box on a FL2 and what was the wind noise like ? Just the crossbars on my previous FL2 made a horrendous noise . Thanks , Mark. 2009 FL2 TD4 SE (Sadly gone)

Yes, with the box not bad but worse with just the bars, I taped up all the holes in the bars which helped but not cured.

There are roof boxes and roof boxes. I ran a Thule Atlantis 200 on the roofs of several cars and while it wasn’t cheap, it was completely silent, right up to ***mph Rolling Eyes AKA Red Merle

I have the LR rails & cross bars & they have never made any noise. I don't have a roof box, but have a wheel, solar panels, fuel tanks & sand tracks on the roof & they don't make any noises. I was careful to design them without edges that generate whistles. Procrastination, mankind's greatest labour saving device!

I don't know which is louder... the hum from those crazy all-terrain tires I have or the roof box and kayak...

Just the right car to take the mother in law out shopping especially with those noisy all terrain tyres.

Mine is v quiet - cheap aftermarket rails fitted, but genuine LR crossbars and a 320 litre Thule roof box.
The black colour and box design also matches the car pretty well!

I had the Thule evo wingbars and an Exodus 580ltr box fitted and very impressed I am with them , not much more noise with the box on .
