Show me your rack...for your bike

Looking to get a bike rack for the E90 and would like to see what others are using. I have a variety of bikes (downhill, XC, street), so I'd like something that could work in almost every situation. Post pics if you got them!

Garage List
Thule Aeroblade crossbars and ProRide XT bike racks.

Quality manufacturing and excellent usability. We have used this for tens of thousands of miles of bike transportation. Full tilt/slide functionality of the moonroof is retained. Wind noise is acceptable. Full unrestricted range of motion of the liftgate is retained.

The ProRide XT would work on any steel or aluminum framed bike. Don't know about plastic bikes.

Is this for an M3? If so, can you mount a simple tow pintle, even if you don't intend to tow a trailer?

If you can put a hidden hitch or a stealth hitch on your car, the Kuat racks are outstanding quality for bikes. I've had a two bike model for almost five years. For a while I had it on a stealth hitch on the back of my tuned 2013 135is 6MT vert. Got the weirdest looks when I drove it around with the bike rack on the back... But hey, roadie does what roadie does.

I saw a stealth hitch on a new M2 competition at the trailhead of a DH area. It had a single Thule rack. Was hoping to chat with the driver about the car and rack and see what he/she was riding but it was gone when I got back down. Looked very nice. Think it was a 1-1/4inch hitch, very well put together.

Myself I have a Kuat base 2.0 on an suv. Works very well but creaks a bit when over 35lbs bikes on it. Their new piston pro x seems nice. Also check out 1up bike racks. You get what you pay for in this.
