The pictures in the linked thread are good and illustrate well the consequences of putting this on.

A better option, coupe or vert, may be to put on a hitch - there is a DIY - and then just get a hitch type bike rack. The hitch install looks pretty involved but does not involve any large holes in the painted surface of the vehicle - some trimming of a belly pan in back is apparently required. Given what BMW charges for accessories, this should also be less expensive.
