:thehand::thehand::thehand::thehand::thehand::thehand::thehand::thehand::rant2::rant2::rant2::thepan::thepan::thepan::thepan::thepan::thepan:I mounted the rack today (a SARIS "Bones" two bike rack, BTW ... not SAURUS ... apparently, I can't spell) with no problems. The rack rests securely on the top of the rear bumper (this is where the weight loads up), and the trunk lid straps have broad, flat "hooks" which are appear to be vinyl coated so no worries about the paint.
The big support arms (three of them) which come in contact with the car have large rubberized feet; as long as the car's paint is relatively clean when you install it, I think it will be fine. I wouldn't leave the rack on the car unless carrying a bike, and I wouldn't install it on a dirty car. When I removed the rack today, there was no trace of it ever being there ... no scratches, no smudges, nothing at all.
I put my big, heavy Cannondale Touring bike on it today and it was rock solid. The bike was no wider than the car on either side. The only bummer is you lose use of the trunk while the rack is on the car.
