BMW 3 series Touring 2007
I have bought this carrier and the middle straps and metal clips look like they will do serious damage to the glass hatch on the tail gate. Do I need an alternative fixing for these two points? The premium carrier indicates that metal clips on that are unsuitable for the composite hatch on the 3 series Touring, but this carrier provides no guidance.

on Halfords Rear High Mount 3 Cycle Carrier Strap Fitting
The standard High Mount rear carrier works perfectly on my 2002 320 Touring, but note the following points; the top straps are secured to the central pillars of the roof bars; the bottom straps thread THROUGH the bumper, ABOVE the parking sensors; the side straps are fitted to the STEEL part of the boot-lid, not the glass.

DO NOT USE THIS CARRIER.
USING THIS CARRIER ON THE GLASS MAY DAMGE THE VEHICLE
There are no Rear Mounted Bike Carriers that are suitable for a BMW 3 Series
If you wish to transport your bikes then you must purchase a tow ball mounted bike carrier (a towbar must be fitted for this carrier to attach to) or a roof mounted cycle carrier (Suitable roof bars must be fitted for a roof mounted bike carrier to attach to)
