Which trunk mount bike racks will fit this years BMW X3 SUV? Is there a Thule that fits? thanks

I have included a link to the trunk mount bike carriers that fit your 2014 BMW X3. Thule does not have an option that will fit.

I recommend Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top rack # HRF2 for 2 bikes or # HRF2-3 for 3 bikes. These racks have an additional upper arm piece that moves the top straps up and over any rear spoiler (if equipped) so no weight is put on it (since the spoiler is not meant to support weight). I have included a link to a video that shows how it works.

If you will be carrying any bikes that do not have a top frame bar that goes straight across (like a typical men's bike would) then I recommend using bike adapter bar # 64005. This will allow you to carry those bikes more level and will provide better ground clearance. I have linked a video showing how the adapter works.
