      What's included in each BMW 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 BMW 5 Series Sedan/Wagon (F10/F11) Conversion Package.

      The BMW 5 Series Sedan/Wagon (F10/F11) 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 BMW 5 Series Sedan/Wagon (F10/F11) Combo Hitch 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.

      Stealthy Bike Hitch

      It takes a few weeks now to get a hitch because everyone wants anything related to bikes. I had it installed at the local Nissan dealer who did a great job. With a BMW there is some cutting of the fascia required just beyond the rear bumper plastic. It is not noticeable; I don't foresee any long term issues that might arise from the lack of that fascia. Because of the stealth nature of the hitch, getting it on and off is simple yet requires you to get down on the ground and put your hands up under the bumper to get to the lock and the handle that releases the hitch insert. You will probably want to take it off only when you aren't going to use it for a while. I would recommend that you have it professionally installed because it does require that you remove the bumper covering and do some cutting on the fascia which is in effect a plastic shield that simply keeps water and debris from getting on the underside of the trunk. Nice but not absolutely necessary. The whole assembly will lower the ground clearance by about 2 inches. I have not used it yet to give any review of that aspect but so far it looks as if it will work great. Pics available.

      Perfect for me!

      Install was very simple, only about 2 hours, everything fit well, cut less plastic than the directions said to as to keep a bit more structure in my bumper

      2013 BMW 535I GT Stealth Hitch

      The hitch works great. High quality. It needs to be professionally installed which is what I did. The only problem which was not mentioned anywhere was that in the GT model the bumper had to be cut slightly so the hitch would fit. I wasn’t too happy about that but the professional installers made it look good. I think you should update your site so people understand that.

      Appreciative of Customer Service

      I was reluctant to purchase a hitch twice the cost of other hitches and I was in a time crunch for needing it installed and ready to use. The selling feature of this hitch for me was that it would be completely hidden when not in use so I decided to pay the premium. I had issues with shipping and wiring through this purchase and installation and Stealth Hitches dealt beautifully with my frustration and stood by their product. I was not easy to deal with due to the situation I was in and I appreciate their continued efforts. The wiring issue was from my installation error and they fixed the shipping issue immediately when I brought it to their attention. The product is well packaged and of good quality. I think the installation SOP that comes with it could be adjusted to be a little more methodically arranged. They are a little more set up for if you've already done it once; a few steps get ahead of themselves. Thank you for the customer service.
