    Here's the scoop. I was waiting on these.

    But boy does it add to the wind noise. Sounds like I'm riding a skateboard on pavement now.

    Nice Vapor! So, do you put some kind of pod on that, I can't see storing things in it? It's morning, my excuse!
    As for the noise, crank the music! Red is so nice, wish I got it instead! Typical female, keep changing my mind! lol

    That looks very cool & unique. Leaving it on all the time, or just for trips?

    Wind noise = fuel consumption penalty. Probably a ~10-15% hit on the highway (empty).

    I'll be adding this to the modifications list.

    I'm going to leave it on for while, but it is mainly just for trips. I go to big paintball events all over Ontario and sometimes the US a lot in the summer, I needed it to hold my gearbags and tents, plus I'm usually with someone so there is their stuff as well. I don't need any paint stains, or pine needles in my new car. I can remove the basket without tools and it's super light so one person can manage it fine.

    Plus I really like the look of the car in the first picture.
