If I couldn't afford a proper second car, I would literally refuse to transport a bike anywhere if the only way to do it was on my Lexus.

What a horrible visual: A bike a rack on a Benz, BMW, or Lexus.

LATE NOTE: Oops, just saw the photos above my post. OMG!! That's like sacrilegious or something worse! Take that thing off and get a second car, please! UGH!
(Yes, I realize I'm commenting on an old post - but just saw it today)

It is a car - a sedan. Not a Lambo/Ferrari etc., and not a show-piece that is to be kept on a pedestal and adored. For somebody who is single, why should he/she have to maintain a second car just to transport a bike? I have a SUV too, but have absolutely no issues in using my GS for taking my bike to a trail that is a little far, or for taking my luggage to the airport.
