I was reading online that some people thought that both the bikes and trunk rack moved just a bit too much with that setup, which in turn scratched the paint, do you have that problem?
Every trunk mounted bike rack I've ever used scratched the paint. You did the best set up with the Yakima rack system, safe for your car and versatile to carry other stuff with other attachments if you wish.
The only problem is the color of your bike doesn't match your car!!! You need a GHIG Mustang or break out the plastidip on the bike!!
Anything sitting on the paint has the chance to scratch.....there will be vibrations. Maybe some of the clear bug guard material under the feet would help prevent scratches and scuffs plus it is easy to remove.

I wake up in the morning with nothing to do and by supper time, I have half of it done.
I also had a Dahon folding bike, but mine was the Dahon Espresso. It's probably the only folding bike Dahon offers that doesn't look like it was meant for clowns. It has the appearance of a normal street bike, but folds and fits very well in the trunk of the stang. I used it to commute to class for 2 years on my older S197; parked about a mile off campus, then rode in. Highly recommended.
