      What's included in each BMW X5 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 X5 (E70) Conversion Package.

      The BMW X5 (E70) 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 X5 (E70) 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.  

      ACTIVE HARNESS

      • 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.

      Beyond expectations

      Customer service was amazing. From start to finish. I took for installation and we realized that i ordered the wrong ball mount. The did not hesitate to UPS the one needed and had it in 3 days. I was able to tow my new travel trailer with confidence. The quality is pristine. Also, we had questions and all safety concerns were addressed very professionally. I am very pleased with my investment. Having this fully hidden hitch and maintaining my BMW with its original appearance is priceless. 100% recommended product. Thank for everything.

      BMW X5 Stealth Hitch is Awesome

      I chose to install it myself. I am an above average DIY person. I loved that the bumper is not completely hacked up. I have a sport package and you can't even tell the hitch is there when it is not on. the hitch itself is well made and the stainless billet block prevents corrosion from being a pain. I recently added the bike rack carrier attachment and drove cross country, no problem!

      Best BMW add on

      I love my BMW X5 and couldn’t imagine doing anything to it to decrease its great looks. But I really need to put a bike rack on my car. After I installed my Stealth Hitch, I was elated. It was pretty straightforward to install, and amazing once installed. The engineering and quality are first rate. I’m very impressed in that regard. It even adds to the quality of my BMW.

      Stealth Hitch for the 2012 BMW X5

      The shipping was fast. The instructions were clear and the finished product was great. I took my time with the procedure and it took me nearly three hours. Would recommend you use painters tape along the corners of the bumper as they drag along the ground as you maneuver the bumper. I cut the underside of the bumper with a soldering iron since the Dremel was not doing the job. (too thick) Would definitely recommend. Great product.
