Idea Wanted a 156 Saloon Towbar/Bike rack

Hello all need to buy a 156 Saloon Towbar/bike rack or maybe just buy a bike rack that fits well onto the 156 saloon model.

I hate tow bars but also do not want to kill the paint on my car, so does anyone know of a good high level bike rack that fits OK or is it a Towbar job.

Also if anyone has a bike rack or a towbar for sale just let me know.

High level bike rack is easy, just get std 156 aero roof bars and most Thule accessories fit.

I fitted a Bosal removable swan neck towbar on my 156 and it's quite discreet with ball removed and believe a bike rack accessory plugs straight in where tow ball is fitted.

Anyway just thought the info would help

I brought my 156 with its towbar. Brough a Thule 2 bike rack for it. Works very well. I am not sure but also believe / been told that tow bar is a better way to carry stuff as its not 'hanging' to the rear window. But just became not to carry too much otherwise it effect the nose weight or somthing....

Saying this if Idisnt have a tow bar I would deploy the roof rack method over the hang on racks

Hope that helps

I have a brand new in box WITTER Towbar with electric loom thats sitting in the back of my garage and unlikely to ever get used, make me an offer and see if it would suit you better?
