Default E36 Coupe OEM Roof/Bike Rack

Hey guys,

Haven't posted in a while, but unfortunately I need a bicycle rack for my E36 M3 coupe. I know there are primarily 3 options...Thule, Yakima, and an OEM rack, and I have heard that the OEM rack doesn't come in contact with the paint (sits under the weather sealing), whereas both the Thule and Yakima racks do. Does anybody have any links as to where I could purchase one of these (the OEM rack)? As well as a bicycle attachment (I would really prefer one that keeps the front wheel on, as opposed to attaching to the fork).

I usually take a bus to my campus, but the buses around me only have 2 spots to load a bike onto, and I want to have a backup way to take my bike to campus if I need to get to class.

Thanks!
-Rob

Sedans had an OEM rack. I do not believe they ever offered an OEM one for the coupe.

Oh, nice. I was under the impression there was nowhere to mount the coupe roof rack and thus they didn't make one. The sedan has like, integrated mounts hidden under the top lip near the doortops or something.
