Sports bars?

Hey I was wondering how many people have the roof rack bars, and if you do do you prefer the look of the Compass with or without the bars? I mean when you're not using them... I'll go first: I take them off unless I'm using them, They sort of take away from the lines of the Jeep. Any opinions?

I almost had to wash my eyes after reading that.

2009 Jeep Compass North 4X4, Sunburst Orange

Everyday as a child i used to pray to God to give me a jeep. After a couple of years i realized that God did not work that way. So i stole a jeep and asked for HIS forgiveness

I find the bars very fussy to remove and reinstall so I tend to leave them on. The wind noise from the one over the sun roof is really annoying, an air deflector like Thule makes should be available, but sadly is not.
They DO make the car easier to spot in parking lots for sure.
Has anybody found any sort of trick to simplify the R&R?

I've been considering getting a set for mine and buying a conduit carrier and a ladder holder as well. Really handy but don't know if it would pay for itself easily.

I had a quick look around and they are expensive. For that money I just put a carrier inserted into my hitch and its behind the vehicle. No wind drag and no climbing onto the roof with the load.
