OEM W205 Roof Bike Rack Thoughts

Does anyone have the oem mercedes roof mount bike rack? what are your thoughts? The trailor hitch is more expensive and i dont want to put a hitch on my car. would prefer roof rack and also more versatile for other accessories.


Do you prefer to put bikes on hitch or roof? I would think hitch would protect bikes more from road debris. Any other negatives to roof bike rack? Aerodynamics i guess. We dont have crazy expensive 6k dollar each bikes but they are still nice trek bikes.

appreciate any input.

was planning to get oem basic roof rack part # 205 890 0093 and bike mounts 000 890 02 93 64

Check the Thule site. Trunk mount is also an option.

i have already looked there. I def dont want trunk mount. roof or hitch mount preferred. I didnt like the hitch becuase all of them had to cut diffusor. I didnt want to do that. roof just seems so high up haha.

may just end up putting the hitch on our lincoln mkc. under $200 and i already have a hitch bike rack. wanted to drive the benz but oh well. Still curious to see solutions from others.

1 bike would, but wouldnt be able to fit the wifes as well. and the dog may be a little crammed.


the suv is probably a better choice for this sort fo thing anyway.

Won’t a bike rack slow you down? You might need a tune to make up the difference from the drag

Hi, I have it and I love it.

I also have the same kind of OEM roof bars for my 911. Also, the bike rack that goes on it are compatible. So I am using my Porsche bike carrier on my C300 Roof bars.

Looks like there’s some roof bars for sale in the marketplace if you’re still interested.
