      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 Z4 (E89) Conversion Package.

      The BMW Z4 (E89) 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 Z4 (E89) 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. 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.

      Really well made

      I thought the hitch a bit pricey....until I saw it. The workmanship is exceptional and materials are top notch. Very sturdy construction. Nice finish. I had the hitch installed by a good body shop because I was afraid I'd scratch the paint taking the rear facia off. It took them 2 hours = $116. They reported that the instructions were spot-on (don't see that real often), fit was perfect, installed easily. The receiver connector is perfectly machined and the latch mechanism is really an exeptional piece of engineering. There is ZERO wobble in the receiver, even with my bike rack attached. I strongly recommend.

      The bike “Stealth Hitch” on my BMW Z4.

      I little tough getting the bumper off, given I don’t do this for a living! Install was pretty straight forward. Instruction did not warn to make sure metal bumper clip are on before reinstalling bumper. Green arrow on screw in wheel well has a metal clip, make sure it’s on before reinstalling bumper! Looks great! Now you see it, now you don’t
