      What's included in each BMW hitch package?

      Stealth Hitches offers a rack only package, a towing package, and a combination tow and rack package.  The same cross beam and vertical latch block are used on all packages.

      The Rack Package uses a detachable rack receiver (2" and 1 1/4" square tube) 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 Tow 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 carry 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.

      new hitch installed

      Although installation time was 6 hours plus, I'm pleased with the results. Hitch is high quality and uniquely made for my car, (not available through other sources).

      Stealth hitch for BMW F31 3 series wagon(s)

      We have two F31 sport wagons with hitches on both. The older hitch was purchased from Invisihitch a little over a year ago, which appears to have become Stealth Hitches (?) but the newer Stealth Hitch is a much better design. The older design replaced the entire stock bumper frame where the newer design simply attaches to the stock bumper, and is much more straightforward to install. Great product and customer service. Five stars!

      Can't see it, but it looks so good!

      Buying process was a breeze. Steve and team were ready to answer my questions about the product and the installation process. It took me about twice the time stated in the instructions, but only because I missed one of the bumper re-installation steps. Entirely my fault! The final result was as advertised: You can't really see the hitch in place!! I couldn't recommend this hitch enough. Great service, great product and even great fit that doesn't ruin your car's looks!

      Expensive, but worth it

      I was initially hesitant to purchase a Stealth Hitch, entirely because of the high price. But after installing and using both the tow and rack functions, I am very pleased with my purchase. The installation instructions were helpful and accurate, especially the trailer light wire portion. I had read several online wiring problem stories, but the Stealth instructions were perfect. Shortly after installing the Stealth Hitch, I towed a loaded 5x8 U-Haul trailer halfway across the country. The solidity and relative quietness of the Stealth Hitch gave me peace of mind during the long trip. I’ve had Curt hitches on many previous cars, and they’re perfectly adequate. But the versatility and quality of the Stealth Hitch really sets it above everything else I’ve seen or used. Buy a Stealth with confidence!
