I went with the Thule Doubletrack 990XT ($300). The liftgate clears the rack when one bike is mounted, if the bike is in the back slot (see pictures at link below).

My only complaint is that the...

I think that's more of a Canadian thing. Cars are cheaper in the US and disposable income is higher, so luxury cars are not driven by mostly Asians. :)
