      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 (E85) Conversion Package.

      The BMW Z4 (E85) 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 (E85) 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.

      Stealth Hitches BMW Z4 (E85) (2002-2008) Review
      11/26/2019

      From two wheels to four wheels.

      After thirty-eight years, well over 200,000 miles and forty-five states we decided at seventy-six years of age it was time to give up the motorcycle. 34 years of these miles was pulling a motorcycle camper. We decided to get a small convertible to pull the camper with. I purchased an 03 BMW Z4 with 39,000 miles and started looking for a hitch. I found only three companies that made one. I contacted two of them by email or phone message, but neither responded. I called the number for Stealth hitches on a Sunday night to leave a message, but Steve answered the phone. I told him what I needed, he said he thought he had one in stock and would call me Monday to let me know. He called me Monday and said he could install it on Thursday. They installed the hitch and wiring harness and showed me how to put the receiver on. The shop was so clean you could eat off the floor. I could not be happier with the product and service. I highly recommend these guys if you're looking for a totally hidden hitch and professional experience , then these guys can't be beat. Thanks again , Steve and crew.
