Need (Expert) Advice

Never had a bike rack before. Will be carrying 2-3 adult bikes on sedan and/or coupe. What particulars do I need to look for? Rack to carry bike with front wheel on or off, which is preferred? No roof rack.

Any suggestion where to purchase - bike shop or internet?

Any suggestions/advice will be appreciated.

S600 & CL500 for business. 2005 SL55/65 AMG coming home soon to replace 2004 ML500 given to daughter.

I saw damaged paint from trunk lid mounted bike rack - no way I am getting one of these.

I suggest get hitch installed and get a hitch mounted rack.

See if has something for you. They have a set-up for the older E and S class that uses the license plate frame. Might work on your car.
