2017 GLS - looking for roof box and cross bar suggestions

Hi all - I have 2017 GLS and I am looking to get a roof box. My options seem to be limited to Thule or Yakima and I will need cross bars for the top. I have read that some boxes have a whistling sound at certain speeds. Trying to gather whatever info I can to make the best decision here.

Itís not the boxes that whistle so much, as much as the bars.

Thule make the MB-branded roof bars and boxes. I have a pair of MB bars with an elliptical cross section that reduces noise.
