      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 X3 Conversion Package.

      The BMW X3 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 X3 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.

      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.

      We also offer an active harness option for added features such as:

      • Disabling the back-up sensor to eliminate beeping while backing up to your trailer.
      • Rear camera zoom at the trailer connection point for positioning the vehicle and preventing damage to the vehicle.
      • Stability control to limit trailer sway. 
      • This harness requires the same programming as the factory hitch harness.
      • We can program your vehicle remotely, preventing the need to take the car to a dealer or BMW shop for programming.
      • The active harness is only compatible with vehicles that have the Trailer Tow Hitch Preparation Option (Option Code 8SL.)  A BMW dealer will be able to identify if your vehicle has this option by the VIN.

        Awesome product!

        Installed on 2019 BMW X3. PREFECT product if you want a bike rack but don't want to invest in the OE towing setup!

        It truly is “Stealth”

        Install was so easy even a caveman can do it. Don’t even know it’s there. Far better than the factory hitch set up.

        Upon the opening of the well packaged hitch, I was very impressed with the quality and workmanship of the manufactured components. In addition, I found the instructions detailed and complete. Customer service was very responsive and helpful from the beginning to end! I highly recommend this company for your towing needs!

        Love it

        I debated factory vs Stealth at the time we bought the car. Decided to go with Stealth, although I was nervous about installing it myself. Took me a few months to get the courage to give it a try as I was doing it by myself with limited experience. It took me about 3.5 hours to install as I am somewhat meticulous about things. Having all the right tools is a must or it would be much more difficult. So worth a few extra bucks to make sure you have everything you need. I also have one tip for those that do not have a car jack or means of raising the rear end. Because the latch lock requires 150lb of torque and the factory beam covers the hitch frame when installed, I found it easier to first attach the hitch frame and tighten the factory nuts (no need to torque them just tight enough to keep hitch frame attached) and then install and torque the latch block. Once the latch block nuts have been torqued, undo the factory bolts and reinstall the factor beam and torque the factory nuts as recommended. Overall could not have been happier with how it all turned out.
