Seconded. I've got the triple version and I love how it seems to work on just about every car - and is ideal because it avoids spoilers (which has been a key requirement over the years!)

Most of my friends who have R50/R53 MINIs have the Bones rack. I think you can't have a roofrack without drilling.

I had a Saris Bones 2 on my R53. I replaced the top hatch hooks with these toggle things that braced along the inside of the boot, and a bit of helicopter tape on the bumper where the feet went.

Could you share some photos of the toggle set up next time you're set up.

thanks
