        What's the best Audi A5 & S5 trailer hitch package?

        Stealth Hitches offers a rack only package and a combo package with tow and rack options. The same cross beam and vertical latch block are used on all packages so if you need to upgrade to tow later you can with the Audi A5, S5 Conversion Package.

        The Audi S5 hitch Rack Package comes with standard 2" detachable rack receiver that accepts current versions of bike racks, ski racks, cargo platforms, and other square tube accessories.  A wiring harness is not required if rack connections are the customers only application.

        The Audi S5 Combo Package uses a detachable ball mount that operates differently than a typical square tube receiver hitch.  When inserted into the stainless-steel receiver block, a tight connection is created to the vehicle frame, eliminating the jerking and banging associated with square tube receivers type hitches during starts and stops. This solid connection creates less wear and tear on the vehicle transmission and is a more pleasurable ride for the passengers. 

        Stealth Wiring Harness

        Our "Stealth" wiring harness and controller is specifically designed to monitor and duplicate the tail light functions.  Drawing current from the tail light circuits can cause vehicle faults, especially on European vehicles.  Our controller draws current directly from the battery to eliminate this issue. For vehicles with numerous trailer lights, Stealth harnesses are designed to increase the current capacity from the typical 5-amp solid state limitation to a full 20 amps.

        Overall, I'm quite satisfied with the Stealth Hitch and my installation. The quality of construction and finish are top notch as is the customer service. I had a few difficulties installing that I brought on myself. Read and and study closely the installation instructions. There were a couple of items in the instructions that were wrong but had no issues getting around them. I spent around 4 hours doing the work not including interruptions. Of course if I did this again, it would take a lot less time. Duh. Regarding the fascia trim, I used a Dremel plastic cutting disc bit that worked very well.

        Take your time and your project will come out awesome.

        This is a great product and fit very well. The instructions are easy to ready and understand but read them carefully. I had to call into tech support a couple of times to make 100% sure I did not mess the install up. Their customer service is GREAT!. I strongly suggest that you have a larger variety of automotive tools than the ones stated in the instructions. You will need to use various drive extensions and a few other tools like a multimaster to get this done right. The entire project took me about 8 hours to install which included wrapping up the electrical connections in the VW/Audi Cloth tape. Cutting the rear bumper proved to be a challenge and it's better to cut the bumpper slightly smaller than too large. This was the most challenging part of the install......getting the cuts even as the A5 Base and the S-line have different bumpers. This is not a project for a novice....if you are inexperienced.....I suggest you go to an automotive body shop that works on Audi as they will be familiar with bumper and crash bar removal as well and the electrical connections. All in all this is a great product, very well built and worth every penny!

        Audi S5 Sportback 2018 works great!

        Overall easy process, you have to cut into the bumper and some screws to remove were actually nuts instead, probably difference from the A5 to the S5. Some helpful tips, use a Tin Snip (Sheet Metal scissors) for cutting the bumper. Much cleaner cut and very easy to maneuver in cutting the plastic. I cut a traced outline of what to cut from the measurements provided. There is also a wire that has to be moved and was able to reuse the original holder by using a pry bar to pop it off the bumper. Overall everything else was exactly explained in the instructions! Great look and well designed product.
