Do they go through OK? I have the fairing on it too but it looks pretty sturdy. I can't imagine too many problems with it.

I went through car washes for four years with Yakima racks without any problems. I didn't use a faring, but I can't imagine that the faring will create any problems.
My Yakima rack and faring handle car washes fine (nm)Steve Davis

I have a Yakima rack with fairing and I've never had trouble so long as I stick to the car washes that say "brushless" or "no touch." The old style ones with the spinning mechanical brush that comes down on the top of your car are supposedly a no-no. I haven't chanced it so can't speak to that.
the rack come out fine,Rusty McNasty

but the bikes are usually a mess after going through the wash!! All those pieces of cloth get caught on the chainrings, and it only cleans the bike on one side!!
I demanded my money back from the carwash, and they refused!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
