      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 Audi Conversion Package.

      The BMW 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 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. 

      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.

      Alpina D5S 2021 model with Stealth Hitch

      I am a downhill biker in Japan and I also like to drive my car. I currently changed to the latest Alpina D5S from 2013 Alpina D5, and found Stealth Hitch which looks great product to enjoy my life. Of course I wanted to purchase Stealth Hitch from Japan, however, the shipment to Japan has not supported. So I looked for good forwarder to support exporting to Japan and this issue was fixed. Finally I placed an order to buy the Stealth Hitch to fit BMW 2017~ 5 series (G30) and received at home in Japan. I brought the set of hitch to my BMW dealer workshop with my Alpina, however, it didn't fit my car as is because of two reasons : the hole location of screw shaft is a bit different (3~4mm) and the bumper beam of Alpina D5S has the exhaust piping hunger but the hitch beam didn't has hunger. Then I brought back the hitch set to my home and visited metal workshop to enlarge the screw hole and to ask making of exhaust piping hunger based on my design drawing. .. Finally I got the perfect parts set and brought those to my dealer workshop again ! And my mechanic team did a perfect job ! They installed Stealth Hitch set perfectly and modified the undercover of bumper exterior with their technique perfectly ! I am looking forward to going to mountain area this season very much ! Appreciate Stealth Hitch !

      Stealth Hitch for BMW 540

      I'm very impressed with this hitch. Very easy to attach and remove the accessory piece (I will use the hitch for a bike rack)--but while it is in place it is very secure. One challenge was finding a convenient place nearby to install the hitch for me--but I ended up using a body shop which I trusted even though it does not ordinarily install hitches. The installation worked out fine. It was also a pleasure dealing with Stealth. Real live people answer the phone (Steve/Jan) who have intimate knowledge of the product and are very customer service oriented.
