The best option in my opinion would be to use a trunk mount bike rack. This is because it is much easier to load the bikes and because you will not have to spend as much money as you would with a roof rack. For a 3-bike rack I recommend the Thule Raceway 3, # TH9002PRO that you have referenced.

I personally own this rack and my family and I love it. What makes it the best choice amongst trunk mounts is its plethora of features. It comes with an integrated cable lock in the last bike position, the ability to lock the cables to deter theft, and anti-sway cradles.

But the best feature has got to be the retractable cables that make installation and removal a breeze.

If you will be carrying any bikes that do not have a top frame bar that goes straight across (like a typical mens bike would) then I recommend using bike adapter bar # TH982XT. This will allow you to carry those bikes more level and will provide better ground clearance. I have to use these adapters and without them my wifes bike would be at a severe angle and I would not be able to load my sons bike at all. I have linked a video showing how the adapter works.

I have linked the other 3-bike racks that fit your M35 but the Raceway really is the best. For any trunk mount rack be sure that the rack and vehicle, where they touch each other, are clean to avoid scratches. A coat of wax will also help.
