    Audi A4 bike carrier

    What's the best carrier for a 2007 Audi A4? Two of the main criteria are:

    That it mount up secure without scratching the car
    Quickly load the bike without removing front wheel

    I am considering the Yakima and Thule. Is one any better than the other?

    Thanks,

    Ed

    IIRC, Wagon has roof rails you can attach load bars to, and then bike trays. Sedan does not have roof rails, so hitch rack is the only no-touchy option.

    I would say hitch rack anyway. Less noise, easier to deal with, no gas mileage hit.

    A thule T2 will definitely not scratch your car and allow for you to put it in the rack without taking a wheel off.

    You're turning black metallic.
