Hmmm Alfa Giulietta 2014 roof racks

Pretty happy with my Giulietta apart from the roof racks. First time I saw them I thought of Bunny ears because they sit so high. They are however quite cute looking but not very functional. When I go over 50km/h they whistle, loudly or softer depending on which way the wind blows. As I increase speed they get louder, over 100km/h they sound like an aeroplane, no joke! The dealer said there were no other options for the Giulietta so I asked for a refund and I still do not know if this will be forthcoming. I will still need an alternative option for roof racks however. Is it possible to fit any other roof racks please?
Thank you

Welcome to AO

You could try wrapping the bars with pipe lagging/insulation to reduce the wind noise.
