I recently purchased a new 2014 2.0T ATS4 in December 2015. I absolutely love the look of the car. I'm into road biking and am considering putting a hitch on the back for a bike rack. i don't want to ruin the great looks of this car. Does anyone have a picture of their ATS with a bike hitch?

do you use this bike rack on your car?
I don't personally no, but I was just wondering if it was a consideration vs a hitch type. Wasn't sure if you were against that style for some reason or hadn't given them any thought. Just an option vs putting a hitch on. I don't know anything good or bad about them unfortunately.

Definitely a consideration, I'm glad you suggested it. I'm probably going with the trunk mount instead of the hitch. Thanks!

To each his own but this does not look good. Houston we have a problem.

It's for hauling bikes around. It's not meant to look good. It's meant to perform a function. It's not like you drive around with bikes attached to the car daily. Quick easy uninstall in seconds when you aren't riding. Not sure what the problem would be.

I like the idea of a hidden hitch as well, since the trunk mounted setups will scuff the paint. However, I don't think there are any good options yet...

I went with the Thule trunk mount bike rack. I used it over the weekend and it was bombproof! I had less movement than my hitch mounted bike rack on my previous car.. It was easy to install and extremely secure and stable.

Did it leave scuff marks?
