A couple of months back I used the recommended Yakima bike rack hardware and adjustments (for the E46), but the darn thing wouldn't fit. Their customer service wasn't any help.

On the right front, the door wouldn't close properly! If I forced it shut, there was a gap between the outer rubber seal and the door frame. Not good for wind noise or water leakage. There just wasn't enough room for the clip to fit properly between the door and the frame.

I took it back and got a refund. I am now waiting for the Thule rack.


: : I understand the new Thule roof rack for the '99 328 sedan will not be available until May.

: I've been looking for a bicycle rack for my E46 sedan. Retail for a Yakima rack with locking clip for a road bike's quick-release front hubs is about $450, and I don't think they're discounted much, if at all. BMW has racks of its own. I don't know anything about the Thule racks. Can you point me to some information?

: Thanks.
