      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.  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.  

      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.

      FINALLY a hitch for my BMW

      Excellent excellent service and product. I could not find anyone in my city of 200,000 who would easily install a hitch on my new 2019 X3 BMW for my bike rack. I found Stealth Hitches online, called to ask some questions and made arrangements to come up and wait for the installation. I love it - you absolutely cannot see it when the hitch is removed. It was easy for me to install at the factory when the car was on a lift, a bit trickier when I was at home by myself, but I have it now. THANKS

      Totally Awesome

      Great hitch! The installation instructions are very detailed and easy to follow. We had no trouble performing this over an evening and morning. Our biggest complaint is the best part of the product--you can't even tell we did anything to the vehicle except when we're using it. We just needed a hitch receiver for a cargo box. The box has lights so I opted for the combo kit to get the wiring package. As an aded bonus, if I ever need to pull a little trailer around I'm set.

      Awesome System

      I have used the Stealth Hitch system over the summer and love it. The design is well thought out and intuitive to use, I can install or remove it without looking, in seconds. Our BMW X3 has the "kick under the bumper to open" option for the rear lift gate and I wanted a hitch that would preserve that feature when not in use - Stealth Hitch fit the bill. The assembly is solid and looks built to last.

      Best online kit purchase ever!

      Let’s be honest, this hitch is outrageously expensive costing much more than competitive hitches, but in my opinion worth every penny!! Installed on my 2018 X3 M40i last weekend - 1) it’s the only hitch design that is truly completely hidden from view. 2) The quality of workmanship and materials is outstanding. How many times have you bought a kit to find: missing parts, inaccurate directions, or components that need to be altered for your application? Everything about this system is perfect. The time I saved not going to the store for missing parts, not re-drilling holes, and trying to decipher poorly written directions more than makes up for the additional cost. I’m an experienced tech. This is not a difficult project, but is a tedious one with lots of parts to remove. If you follow the directions patiently step by step, no problem. I will say I think 2.5 hours is a bit optimistic. I would buy another Stealth Hitch in a heartbeat. Great product. Great experience. Rich
