Default Hitch Bike Rack?

Does anyone knows if is there a bicycle hitch-rack available for the 250/350 convertible?
I'd love to get one. I want to take my bike to the beach, but it won't fit in the trunk.

There is a hitch available for the IS250C. No one seems to know if it will fit the 350.

Really? you do know the IS250C and IS350C have the same exact body right?

and too the OP... you probably already know, but the retractable roof most likely can not be operated.

But is the exhaust system identical? The hitch bolts to the muffler supports.

is250/is350 sedan share the same exhaust... so im pretty positive that is250c/is350c share the same exhaust as well... it wouldnt be cost effective for lexus to have to develop 2 different exhaust systems for technically the same car.

Yeah, Lexus IS250c and IS350c have the same body, and imagine exhaust is the same. In any case if anything varies in the exhaust, it
'll most likely be the inside dimensions, but not the outside.
So ECL, do you have a link to the rack available for the IS250c??
I wrote to a couple of bicycle rack manufacturers and I am waiting on an answer.
