Bike Carrier for a 159 SW


Does anyone use a bike carrier for the back of their 159 SW?

I have just bought one and am worried that the attachment to the top of the boot is technically gripping the plastic rear spoiler.

Additionally, the side straps won't attached to the sides of the boot lid because of the design of the boot.

When it's fixed, it feels solid enough, however I could do with anyone sharing any experiences from their cars.

Re: Bike Carrier for a 159 SW

This was covered fairly recently - do a Search on this forum.

I use a Thule roof rack, and have carried 3 bikes on it with no problem on my 159 SW. I prefer roof mounting to boot mounting, as I don't have to worry about lighting boards etc to stay legal.
