Ha. Not any that ride. Lol. What about just a Bones 2 then. Is that a good product.


And it says the Bones 3 doesn't fit with the spoiler. Doesn't say anything for the Bones 2

I have both a roof rack and a trailer hitch . I by far like the trailer hitch better, I can put a bike rack in it or I tow a light trailer with it. The fuel mileage to tow is no worse than the roof rack..
Normally I get 36 up to 38 or so mpg.
, With an empty roof rack I get about 32, with a kayak on the roof rack it drops to 31,
Two kayaks on the trailer is about 31 mpg.. And no lifting:)
Hauling the bikes on the hitch mount drops me to about 34 mpg. ( they stick out beyond car sides)
I have both so I can take kayaks and bikes... Plus I tow my motorcycle occasionally . I would think a bike on the roof would slaughter your mpg...

I love my yakima roof rack and I would definitely recommend one for anyone because if nothing else I think they just look really cool. Plus if you make a wood deck for it like I did you can have picnics on top of your car! haha

Old thread. I like the stripes on the grille. Been thinking of something like that-simple and subtle. Original idea was trying to rip off the trademark GTI red stripes on their grill (but do blue-oval blue) or do stripes or hashs like you did, but trolling BMW M color scheme.
