Apologies for resurrecting an extremely old thread
I'm now looking to pass my back rack onto another 1 series owner, as I'm upgrading to a 3 series in the next few months. Pictures are contained earlier in this thread; condition is excellent, albeit in a used state. This rack has been awesome over the past 3.5 years, and secured my bikes around some very twisty roads and up big hills in Scotland, Wales, the Lakes, Peak District etc :-) Will be sorry to see it go, but BMW do not offer the rack preparation option any more :-(
I'm based between Leeds and York in the UK - message me if you are interested!
