Currently searching for the best style of bike racks for our 530xi. Are the Factory Roof mounted bike rack systems more efficent/safer for the BMW, or is the bolt on hidden hitch style better. My wife may someday be loading kids bikes on and off, but, I also don't want to tear the car up. Anyone have experience with these accessories? I think the BMW roof rack system looks better- may not be as easy

By bolt on hidden hitch do you mean the tow hitch below the rear bumper like those on the SUV's? I wouldn't put one of those on a sedan if you ask me.

I have the factory roof racks; they work well and look nice. The roof rails offer versatility beyond holding bikes, you can get cargo box and other transportation accessories to go on them depending on your needs.
