got the Thule last night - built it in about 30mins - result was very good. Very well finished, sturdy and once fitted on the towball, considering it literally only attaches to the towball I was amazed how rigid it was. Felt like I could have lifted the car up by it (sometimes i don't know my own strength!!)
Also comes with a nice light board and Ive ordered a couple of plates to use on it. The release mech for dropping the bikes forward and getting into the boot is great - two knobs which undo fully in about 30secs. It also takes about a minute to hang on the towball too.
Haven't actually tried a bike on the back yet because mines somewhere in america! - but will borrow one from someone at the weekend.
Very good VFM for 70quid delivered off ebay.
May the force be with you. But mostly with me.
