BMW 3-Series 1976-1991, Archway Trunk Mount Bike Rack by ThuleŽ. Recommended Fit Dial Setting: 5. Available in 2-bike and 3-bike options. The Archway is the versatile rack that provides secure and safe bicycle transport. The curved tubes of the Archway provide clearance for spoilers, while the rack arms adjust independently to accommodate different bike frames. The Archway's locking features and ant-sway cages ensure your bikes will arrive safely and in perfect condition.
When you reach your riding destination, the last thing you want to find is your bikes scratched up and damaged from banging together repeatedly during the trip. With the Archway Trunk Bike Rack you'll have no worries. The Archway has features like Hold-Fast cradles with soft-saddle material to protect your bikes' finish and No-Sway cages that prevent bike-to-bike and bike-to-vehicle contact. With the Archway your bikes will look the same at the beginning and the end of your journey.
The patented FitDial with Quick-Fit lever makes installing the Archway a snap. Its long, curved tubes provide so much clearance even vehicles with spoilers can carry this rack. The Archway is fitted with oversized ribbed molded pads that are gentle to your vehicle's finish and channel water away to prevent the accumulation of dirt. The Cinch Lever allows the bike arms to be adjusted independently, enabling the Archway to carry bikes with unique frame designs. The integrated locking cable secures the bikes to the rack and the TrunkLocker strap secures the rack to the vehicle.
The Thule Archway Trunk Bike Rack is available in a version that carries up to 2 bikes and one that carries up to 3. It comes with everything necessary for installation, including detailed instructions.

Once the rack is installed, it holds bikes securely in place and makes theft difficult. I had some problems installing the rack the first time and the instructions were of marginal help. I could not attach the trunk hooks without opening the trunk, once I attached the hooks it was just a matter of adjusting the cables to achieve the proper fit. The rack's size and weight make it difficult to handle while installing. I did not have any problems with trunk dents reported by some users. Two light weight folks could install it easily. Despite the initial installation problems, I recommend this bike rack for anyone that cannot use the trailer hitch version.
