You can put a bike in the back with the seats down and front wheel off. I do occasionally if I need to run into a store after a ride.
Hitch is the way to go, I think. That's the solution we had for the X5. I've had a Saris on my M3, but it permanently etched the paint (or maybe it was the clear coat). Hate to go that way again.

Take my word for it. Nearly EVERYTHING!! And you don’t even need the turbos for that to be true.

If I were going to gamble, I'd spend much less on this https://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifi...php?id=2385696

Amazing how the greenhouse on these old wagons just looks comically large by modern standards.

Ha- forgot about that one! I'm guessing that's probably the most unreliable of them all!
