As someone who recently had his bike fly off the back of the boot rack when the webbed strap that was holding it on broke,I would no way trust them.Even if the suction doesn’t give,there’s going to be an awful lot of force pulling on your year window,on such a small contact area too…….Posted 4 years ago
So after much deliberating, I bought a Seasucker from that US of A.
Rather than buy one of their complete racks, I opted for 3 suction cups with ladder straps. Means I can put on one the saddle nose and then one on each of the grips.
Works like a dream. I’ve put the expensive super bike on it (I do own an Audi) and given it a bit of a pasting and it’s not budged. When the cups do loose pressure (which they have never done when i’ve been using it) the pumps white shaft become exposed. So far so good.Posted 4 years ago

Fine, that’s another reason why I have it. I’m super retarded about my car. A normal rack would mark the paint work big time and the seasucker doesn’t hasn’t yet.

yeah, one tiny little bit of the wrong kind of dust is all it’s gonna take.
I’d be tempted by them on the next car though .. if existing roof rack needs too much modification, just because of the efficient application.Posted 4 years agoTooTallMember
Potential problems will come from the car, not the suckers. Whilst the suckers mught be strong enough, car skins are not designed well for point loads. Some of the examples on that link have bikes on the roof of cars. I’d not want to put a point load like that on a roof panel.Posted 4 years ago
