+1. Even with the foam padding between the fairing and the roof, you will still get scratches. It's not the fairing that scratches the paint, it's the dirt and grit that gets trapped between the roof and the fairing/padding that will scratch the paint. I've had fairings in the past and will never run one again, it's just not worth the tiny aerodynamic advantage or slight noise reduction.

I had a rubber strip on the bottom of mine. It fell off.... The roof was scratched. I wouldn't install anything that touches the paint of the car if I didn't have to. I love how the roof rack screws into the roof vs. resting on it like other cars. You will be fine if you keep an eye on it which I know you will

hmmm interesting. Let me see if I can do something about that, maybe add a strip of clear paint protection film where the fairing touches the roof
