    What rack for New Beetle???

    Ok, just got a new Bug and am trying to decide roof rack vs. hitch vs. Saris Bones.
    Eventually I want either the hitch or roof rack setup but am trying to get something together this week on a very limited budget. Are there any other roof racks that will work? Like one off a Jetta? I've got a friend who may have her old Thule rack from I think a Mk. 3 Jetta so guess I'll be trying that if she finds the rack in her garage.

    So Bug owners pluses/ minuses, how are you hauling your bikes?

    Mk3 roof rack (I assume that's what you meant) definitely will not work - Mk4 VW's had a completely different connection system.

    The Mk4 4-door Jetta & Golf shared the same kit, GTI had different rear feet. Pretty sure the Beetle was completely different.

    If your friend does find her roof-rack, it would just need the specific Thule Fit Kit - about $40.

    Thanks for the response. Guess I was hoping for something that crossfit from a different car but the New Bug is fit specific.
