Hello. This forum has been of great help to me so far. I was just wondering if anyone could give me any advice on the best bike rack (Functional & stylewise) for a VW Jetta (03)
I've never had to transport my bike in the past, so this is all new to me. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Definately get it from http://drivergear.vw.com get the rack and the trays. Its a nice set that fits well and is strong. They shipped it right away.
I like this rack (http://drivergear.vw.com/store/accessory.asp?parent%5Fcategory%5Fid=12&category%5Fid=47&subcategory%5Fid=196&product%5Fid=2240) and this tray (http://drivergear.vw.com/store/accessory.asp?parent%5Fcategory%5Fid=12&category%5Fid=47&subcategory%5Fid=196&product%5Fid=2863)
Check out Thule , they make really nice racks.

If you are looking for trunk mount rear rack, try the Yakima Loco Joe rack. It will hold 3 bikes and this is solid with top, bottom, and side straps. Got mine on sale at Sierra Trading Post for $39.95. Found lpcally at $79.95. Tried a roof rack years ago, never again.

i like the thule roof racks with the front fairing. the look much nicer than the trunk racks on a car. my brother has one that he uses mostly for kayaking and hasnt had any troubles with it.
