However it is more expensive and there is the issue of how to hide the towbar away when not needed.

The other aspect is that roof mounted will damage economy. On my wife's car (VW Touran) 4 bikes on the roof reduces economy from 47mpg to < 35mpg.
Nope, i'm talking atera roof mount verses thule roof mount.

Haven't gat a tow bar, although sometimes i wish i did.
