    What's included in each BMW X6M 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.  


    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.

    Jeffrey B. verified customer review of BMW X6M (E71) High Performance 2009 - 2014

    Exactly what was needed for the X6 M E17 model.

    Had it on in about 2 hours taking my time. I'm impressed with how easy it was to install. The bumper came off easily after watching some YOUTUBE video's on how to remove it. The kit came with replacement 6 rivets for the inner wheel well molding{thank you}. I had to cut, nothing. Completely hidden when the receiver is removed and the lower quick access cover{BMW cover} is put back on. PERFECT Thank you. Fantastic design. I recommend to potential customer to get familiar with how the receiver locks into place before you put it on, just so you have an idea that the handle that locks the 2 inch receiver has to be turned and the keylock has to be pushed in and locked. Fantastic design. PS: It was a tight fit I had to beat the mounting plate over the bumper reinforcement bolts. It did damage the threads slightly, but had NO issues putting the nuts back on to secure the hitch assembly.
