What Bike Racks will Fit a 2016 BMW GT 535i X DRIVE?


Will this bike rack work with my BMW GT? Is there a trailer hitch type model bike rack that would be a good alternative?


Expert Reply:

I have a great solution for you. I confirmed with Thule that the Thule OutWay Platform Trunk Bike Rack for 2 Bikes # TH65JV is not confirmed to fit your 2016 BMW 5 Series GT.

However, for a hitch rack that fits your 2016 BMW 5 Series GT, I recommend the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 Bike Rack for 2 Bikes # SH22G. The Kuat Sherpa 2.0 is a top-of-the-line hitch rack that will give you a nice clean look with your BMW. In addition, the Sherpa comes with included locks to deter theft.

If you need a hitch for your 2016 BMW 535i X DRIVE, I recommend the Stealth Hitches Hidden Rack Receiver # SH97ZR. As the Stealth brand name implies, the Hidden Rack Receiver offers a totally hidden design and gives off a clean, from-the-factory look. The hitch involves a simple bolt-on installation.

If you are interested in a trunk bike rack option, I recommend the Thule Gateway Pro 3 Bike Rack # TH78VR. The benefit of having a trunk rack over a hitch rack is that it doesn't require a trailer hitch in order to transport your bikes. The Pro 3 is great because it includes the patented FitDial system that allows different fit settings to ensure a snug fit to your 525i. It also comes with integrated cable locks for security.
