My advice is to go with their Premier version. Premier is much easier and faster to tie / untie the straps. A simple math, I carry 3 bikes each time, and need to tie / untie at least 4 times (leave home / arrive at park / leave park / arrive at home). and each bike has 2 straps to hold it. so each trip I need to play with the straps for 3x4x2 = 24 times. If you ride regularly, it could be hundreds of times each year. a few dollars upgrade to Premier can save you hours of hassle.

If you don't need 5 bikes, wait for the deal on 4-bike Premier version, which sometimes can drop to ~$100.
I know you're making a bit of a double-entendre there (nice one), but I wanted to add, for anyone else reading, that helicopter tape is another good option for protecting paint on your frame, particularly if you've just bought a new bike and the paint is as-of-yet unblemished (and you want to keep it that way).

I've got a buddy who bought a $2800 bike and I could tell his heart hurt after the paint was immediately damaged on the ride home from the shop by the bike rack. Just trying to help prevent anyone else from feeling that pain.
Anytime bikes are mounted really close together there is a high probability of scratching. I have a trunk rack for 4 bicycles and if 4 are actually loaded, they will all rub from stop and go momentum. I try to keep it to 2 bikes for that reason. If you have metal mountain bike pedals with spikes for grip, make sure they are placed in a position to lower the risk of scraping other bikes.

I've been using the Premier version for the last few years and it's held up great. Used roughly a couple months out of the year to tote my family of five's bikes all around town. It takes a little prep time to fit all the bikes securely, but works perfectly for the in town commutes. Great price for a solid product.

I guess it depends on what bike and accessory you have. I have 1 bike with a child carrier on top of the rear wheel. But I can still load 3 bikes easily on my 4-bike rack.
