      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 3 Series Conversion Package.

      The BMW 3 Series E90, E91 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 3 Series E90, E91 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. 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.

      Your search is over the best hitch on the market

      I was in a real dilemma trying to find a hitch for my 2010 BMW 335i MSport, six speed manual transmission four-door sedan. The hitch was going to be used only for my high end Yeti SB100 mountain bike. My car is not a stock 335i with over 500 rear wheel horsepower and everybody told me I was crazy for putting a hitch on this car. After I did a few months of extensive research I chose stealth hitches. This was my criteria that had to be met...I didn’t want to see the hitch when I didn’t have my bike rack on the car, I didn’t want to add a lot of additional weight to the rear end of the car. Without the 2 inch receiver installed I only gained 4 pounds additional weight since the original BMW crossmember is not used anymore the stealth crossmember takes the place of the-original. Last the quality had to be impeccable the stealth hitch is impeccable!! Even the exhaust hangers are so well-made and designed I didn’t even need to look at the directions it was that easy to install once the bumper was removed. No factory hitch even compares to the stealth hitch, I don’t care what car you’re talking about putting it on this stealth hitch is a work of art. They are definitely more expensive than other aftermarket hitch but the money didn’t matter to me and still much less expensive than the factory hitches. Stealth+1up Bike Racks Match made in heaven. Both are handmade in the United States. Check out the picture of my back end. Great service from stealth also, save yourself a lot of time and heartache and just choose the stealth hitch. I love it!! Thank you.

      I want to preface this by saying the hitch itself is excellent quality and works exactly as advertised. That being said, it was a huge pain to install. When I purchased the hitch I was under the assumption it would install same as all other E9x models (because there was no mention otherwise on the website). After receiving the hitch I began the install and was unable to finish due to a clearance issue with the PDC sensor module. I called Stealth Hitch customer service and was told they would reach back out. After not hearing back I decided to call again and this time spoke directly with Steve. After a 30 min phone call with Steve and his lead installer we all came to my original conclusion that the sensor module would need to be cut and relocated. This isn't a huge issue, but it would have been nice to know before I decided to purchase from them. After finishing the install I sent Steve an email thanking him for taking the time to speak with me and also included some photos of my install as well as instructions on how I cut/relocated the sensor module, hoping to help any future E91 m-sport owners. I never received a response. Long story short - great product, mediocre customer service.
