Love my Saris rack http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
Looks super clean on the C and pops on and off in minutes.
It's on the car right now, so I'll see if I can get a picture up tomorrow.

I have a Thule rack with Rockymounts carriers for my mountain Bike. You are suppossed to use the load bars that run the length of the car but I don't use them. The track ties both racks together. You have to watch the way you position th etrack as the hatch can contact the track when you open it, but other than that it works great.

I've the Yakima rack with bike and snowboard /ski attachments. Don't have it on often anymore. Too noisy. Also -2 or -3 mpg drag.

i already have a thule rack but i have it set up for my old car. what kind of clips do you need to get to anchor the rack to the car? these clips dont go under the weather stripping in the door do they? i had that style on my other car and dont like it at all!
