Bike Racks Again!

So after figuring out that I can't actually get the EU BMW bike rack that screws into the bumper and that I don't want to transport bikes on the roof I'm trying to figure out my best options. Sure I could get a hitch installed but my X1 is leased and I'm pretty sure such modifications would be in violation of my lease agreement.

So I've been looking at various rear mounted bike rack options and I'm curious how other X1 owners have been transporting bikes around? Here are the ones that I've been looking at all claim to work with the X1 but so far using the ole' google I can't seem to find any pics with anyone actually using a rear mounted bike rack on an X1

These all seem to be stable and generally have good reviews but I'm concerned obviously potentially damaging the finish of the X1 or worse yet denting or pushing in various contact points because of weight of the rack + bikes.

Any thoughts very welcomed!
