If you are looking at Saris, use the fit guide and if the "bones" rack is able to work with your car, go with that.

Like this months-old post I copied from the Road Cycling Forum, I'm looking for info on this product. Anyone here have any experience to report? I'm interested in using it on my VW GTI. Thanks.
