I do have an option for you to carry bikes on your 2012 Mercedes-Benz E-350 BlueTEC but they do not make a trailer hitch receiver for the coupe models of this vehicle to my knowledge. Instead, you will want to look into getting a trunk mounted bike rack as this will be your only option besides a roof rack and roof mounted bike rack.

For a trunk mounted bike rack, I recommend using the Saris Bones 2 Bike Carrier part # SA805BL. This bike rack unlike most other trunk mounted bike racks uses 6 straps to secure to the vehicle which means it will be much studier than the other 4 strap options. It has rubber mounting feet and vinyl coated hooks that will protect your vehicle's paint and anti-sway straps to secure the bikes.

Please keep in mind that if you have any step-through or alternate frame bikes then you will need an adapter bar like part # SA3040 to keep them level during transport.
