      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.

      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.

      Stealth hitch for BMW 528i

      The quality of the Stealth hitch is excellent, and professional installation was smooth. When the easily attached/detached receiver is not attached to the hitch, it’s impossible to tell there is a hitch, without peering underneath the car. More than satisfied, good value. danbee Danbee

      Truly invisible high quality hitch

      Needed to tow a heavy trailer for a 2000+ mile roadtrip on my BMW 5 series sedan. Hiding an unsightly receiver, and no effect on ground clearance, were of top priority. This fit the bill easily, and handled the trip with no problems. This package can easily handle anything I attach to it.

      535xi GT fitment

      After much searching locally in Canada I happened across the Stealth hitch site and did some research online and through other European car owner forums. Although I didn't see my specific frame model, F07, I contacted Steve with my questions and almost immediately received both a detailed and informed response in answer. I had a delay in placing my order due to mechanical issues with the car but Steve honoured the discount code which was available at the time of my inquiry and the hitch arrived promptly and securely packaged (having had previous experience with truck hitches being shipped without packaging in the past, this was a nice surprise). The accompanying instructions were clear and easy to follow and after watching a few YouTube videos demonstrating BMW bumper removal I felt confident to give it a try myself and cautiously removed the bumper and installed the hitch without issue. I ordered the 2" receiver as I carry a Thule bike platform which usually runs off the back of my truck and having attached that and two MTB's I can say it feels just as secure as it does on my F350, and I love that it key locks for added security, (although and as appreciated when mounted under a car, the effort required for anyone to get down on all fours and fiddle about between the under tray and body mitigates the possibility of theft in the first place). That being said, when the hitch is installed it's not that obvious anyway as it does not pertrude far out from the underside unlike some other models that I have seen and when it's removed you see no evidence of its placement. Early days but I must say I am super impressed with all aspects of the hitch and even the rubber caps that secure the lock and hitch opening when not in use. Little details like that and the 5 star customer service make a big difference in these times.
