    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 X4 M40i (F26) Conversion Package.

    The BMW X4 M40i (F26) 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 X4 M40i (F26) 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.  

    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.

    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.
