Hi Petrolman, Try Thule car rack systems, The thule clip on high strapless 2 bike rear mounted rack model 9106 is recommended for your car. £166.56. Hope this helps.

Try SARIS Bones 3 or even better, SARIS Bones RS, both will fit your car.

 

Pricey, especially the RS, but will last for ever and really quick to fit and secure. http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=39562

Considering your car would have ben several thousand pounds, a couple of hundred on a bike rack seems nothing by comparison.

 

Forget the cheap rubbish from Halfords, the straps take for ever to fit and ruin your paintwork.

Agree with the other posts here, dont get a cheap Halfrauds type model, they are very poor quality.

I bought a Thurle, dont buy retails though, find the one you need then search the internet for the best price, you'll save £££'s.

Be aware that on most cars even high rise racks still don't clear the lights totally if you leave the wheels on so you'll need a light board. Tow bar companies will fit a lead in the boot to connect it too without fitting a whole tow bar. Only about £40 and better than getting pulled by the police or being liable in an accident if someone drives in to the back of you.
