answer 3
Yes, fits pretty much any car, you need something like a bungee tie to hold the bike still though, small flaw in the design means the bike can swing back and forth freely on the back otherwise!

Dont let that put you off though, 99p solves the probelm and the rack is small and easy to store in the car for those impromptu bike carrying occations.

The Saris Bones solo is not compatible with your car. Racks that are compatible are the Saris Bones 2 or 3 also the Saris Sentinal 2 or 3. These rack will obscure you number plate.

answer 2
Hi

I think even when mounted at the highest point, the bike will still obscure the lights and plate. Legally you should have an secondary one to place on the bikes.

Thanks

will this rack require a lighting bar on a Y reg Fiat Seicenti Sporting 3 door model? And would it need a add on (cross)bar for a ladies hybrid bike?

I would guess it would hold it high, away from the plate and lights, you can essentially set it as high as you need to within reason by adjusting the straps.
I don't think a ladies bike (sans crossbar) would sit properly so unless there is some way to securely add a cross bar (and it would have to be SERIOUSLY secure) I don't think this would suit a ladies bike..sorry..

I've fitted my Saris Bones 3 to a few different vehicle and sure it will fit your BM. Would highly recommend it. Will need some adjustment but use the stickers once it is set up as a guide and it should be a doddle to fit.

Yes it is and no there are not:
On my car a Peugout 106 I have to position the nearside pedal away from the body and wrap the crank and the front Disc with a thick cloth. You need to secure the bike once its on the rack. I bungee the front wheel to the the little towing loop (offside rear) on the car and bungee the front wheel to the frame to stop it swaying.

see my review..

answer 2
The bike is quite close to the car, so it is possible it will hit the back of the car. You would need to use some king of padding to stop this occuring.

With regard to straps. There are no straps provided to stock the bike swinging.
