If you are going to use it a lot, go for a receiver hitch rack. You can take it completely off in seconds. If you won't use it much, get a trunk rack. The nicer ones won't scratch your car (much - you will get some micro scratches at the contact points - dosen't show much on white though), and you can take it off. More fiddly though.

IMO a roof rack is nasty looking on a car, OK on an SUV or a Subaru though.
A bra on a car is uglier than any roof rack. Dude, it ain,t a 76 Trans Am.

If you get a trunk mount rack you need to make sure it fits your car. Your car has a wing on the back and it may get in the way, so check the packaging to make sure your car is supported. When I bought a new car and I could not find a trunk mount that would fit, so I went the hitch route. I've had no problems with my setup and I find it easy to load and unload plus I can take off the carrier in a snap.

I know. I was just thinking how "retro" a bra is. They were really popular on the 70s flaming chicken Trans Ams. The ultimate tackey overstyled car. But man were they POPULAR. That was what I was referencing.

Your car is nice. I wasn't ragging on it. I just think ANY car is better without a bra. I was just joking around and giving my personal opinion. No harm intended.

I have a Thule rack that fits all three of my cars. Saturn Sl2w/spoiler, geo metro sedan, and porsche 944). I think it would fit alright. Its a pretty simple setup.

I once dated a girl who called me one saturday and asked, "should I take my bra off when I wash the car?" I responded with, "is this a serious question and depending on how you take my answer, would you like some help?" Yes, she was serious.
