    I have the Thule fairing on my Mini Cooper. So far it works great, can do a comfortable 80 mph with out too much noise!

    Hi chefmik,

    Thanks for replying. I would like to ask you for more info about the Thule fairing that you have installed on your car.

    Would be most obliged if you could spare some time to measure.

    a) What model are you using? (555 old version or the 870/871/872/873)?

    b) What's the width of the side wing on each side?Are they the same size for both sides?

    c) How does Thule measure the fairing to get the width? Is it from the top which is the widest section or from the bottom?

    I'm from Malaysia and Thule South East Asia does not have the fairing for sale and I have to order them from USA.

    I need this info before I can place the order and get it sent over to me.

    I have sent an email to Thule USA but they do not seem to be able to provide me with the info that I require.

    Look forward to your reply and once again, your help is much appreciated.

    Regards

    I had the 870 on my Subaru. Why don't you just check the Thule website and use the fairing they recommend for your vehicle?

    Rivet,

    Unfortunately, my Toyota Hilux Vigo dual cab is not listed in Thule USA's website since this vehicle is not available in USA.

    That's why I can't use the Thule USA website for their recommendation.

    Would you be kind enough to take a tape measure and measure your 870 (32") fairing on your Subaru?

    Thanks.
