      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. 

      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.

      2021 X3 M-Competition - Full package

      I ordered the full towing package for my 2021 X3 M-Competition SUV online early December. I received the hitch around 7 days later…being in Canada, that is fast! I had the install done at my BMW dealer and the technician over there loved the kit as it’s high quality and easy to install (You could save some $$ installing it elsewhere but having the dealer do it provides a level of confidence in a job well done). The hitch system is invisible. I did my first test last week, the towing ball is super easy to attach (clips) and secure (locks with a thumb push) and I was amazed how slick this thing looks! Taking it off is also super quick and easy. Overall I recommend this to anyone who is looking for a hight quality product that is easy to use. I will use it to tow my snowmobile & trailer in the winter and Mountain bike rack in the summer.

      Stealth Hitch X3 M

      Best option ever if you want a hidden hitch. The Stealth Hitch is an amazing product. BMW does not offer a hitch for my X3M and I am an avid mountain biker. I did not want my bumper modified and some **** hitch installed. I did some research and Stealth Hitch was clearly what I was looking for and I could not be happier with their product. It’s the best period!

      I was in the market for a hitch but did not want something visible when not in use. Stealth Hitch is the answer and I could not be happier.

      Stealth hit for BMW X3M Competition

      This by far was the easiest hitch I ever installed. I spent more time taking the bumper cover off and putting it back on then actually installing the hitch. It has a nice clean look when completed and works excellent. I like the fact that no one knows you have a hitch when you are not using it. Great company to work with and would recommend them to everyone!

      Great Hitch!

      Well designed and strong hitch that is easily removed with the turn of a pin!
