Best Trunk Mount Bike Rack for a 2017 BMW X3 with Spoiler


I have this suv that has a spoiler at the top of the back. This rack is recommended but still looks like the straps pull down over the spoiler. Any other suggestions for rack? Thank you,

If you are worried about pressure placed on the rear spoiler of your 2017 BMW X3 while using a trunk mount bike rack then take a look at the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2 Bike Carrier for Vehicles w/ Spoilers part # HRF2. This bike rack as the title states is made specifically for vehicles with spoilers. The Over-the-Top as you can see in the attached photo will not make any contact with the rear spoiler due to the position of the upper support arm and how it is positioned onto the vehicle. Please note that if you are using any bikes with an alternative frame then you are also going to want to use the Hollywood Racks Bike Frame Adapter Bar part # HRBA-PRO.

The Thule Raceway PRO 2-Bike Rack part # TH9001PRO that you referenced is not recommended for use on a 2017 BMW X3 according to Thule.
