        What's included in each Audi S5 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 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.  The tight connection also allows our hitch to pass the more stringent European test requirements which carries a higher towing rating than the US rating.  Our hitches conform to both US (SAE) and European (EU) test requirements.  

        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.

        Audi S5

        Incredible fit and installation instructions. It took about 4 hours start to finish to install and it works perfectly. I can’t stress this point enough, if you are going to do this yourself, make sure you have the proper plastic pry tools to take the taillights and bumper skin off

        Awesome Audi RS5 hitch that preserves to appearence of the car

        Product and service from stealth hitch was awesome. Although they hadn’t personally fitted one to an RS5 sportback, they were knowledgeable and helped me understand whether it was likely to fit my car. Shipping was fast. The product fits perfectly, and is very high quality. I use all the time for my bike rack and when removed the appearence of the car is perfect with no sign of a hitch at all.

        Fantastic product !!

        Great experience with Stealth Hitches, from initial contact to verify fit for my Audi S5 Sportback, through to continued contact with my chosen installer to ensure a perfect installation. The hitch is extremely sturdy, and is COMPLETELY hidden when not in use. Would highly recommend.

        Great (hidden) option for Audi S5 Sportback

        I am extremely pleased with the service and product. I was hesitant to get a hitch for fear of mucking up the rear view of my car. The Stealth team offered pictures to allay my fears, so I bought it and had it installed at my local Audi dealership. It is easy to install/remove, and it is invisible when not on the car. On my car (2018 S5 Sportback), there was a bit of plastic valance cut out from underneath the car, but you can't see the evidence unless you are looking from below bumper-level (i.e. hidden when walking around the car). I have included a photo of it here.

        It went very well, I was a little concerned when it turned out that the model year posted on your web was not what you had developed but were able to secure one that matched mine and shipped in time for me to use on our trip. Special thanks to Jimmy who helped with some questions that I had during my installation.
