Got my Whispbars from Supacrap.
It was the infills I had to file down to attach them with the supplied fitting.
I am not very adept, so was surprised I managed it, then stressed about the number of "leftovers" when finished.
But they are still there and even holding up my annex. emoticon



cool thanks mate, ill have to see how i go and if i struggle ill yell out haha.

I do need to ask.

Wen you are carrying the bars, do you factor in the added wind resistence into fuel usage?

Other question: Does it feel better when the bars are not on?



I'm sure the bars effect fuel consumption a bit, but the whispbars are supposedly pretty good and not noisy at all

. I had the P-bars on my falcon BF and it was quite noisy and effected fuel consumption by about .2-.3 l/100km.

Re: Bars and Fuel consumption


I haven't kept a record of fuel consumption, as my driving terrain differs all the time. (Live in Sydney).

I have not noticed any difference in the noise at all.
Had a lift very soon after the bars, so am very aware of centre of gravity change, and am driving more carefully around corners in city, but noticed no change in my off roading, although I am very much a Nanna driver anyway.

It's all about what you want to do in your car, no point in complaining about fuel if you want to go places, just need to spend what it takes (within reason ofcourse).

Leaving your roof bars on won't noticeably affect fuel your economy.

If you consider for a moment the frontal surface area of a T31, the slope of the windscreen, location of roof bar mounting points and the shape of a Whispbar/Genuine Nissan Roof Bar, basic physics dictates that wind resistance is so negligible, that any fuel economy fluctuations detected would be the result driving style or terrain rather than the presence of a roof bar being on a vehicle!
