    What's included in each BMW X6 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 X6 (F16) Conversion Package.

    The BMW X6 (F16) 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 X6 (F16) 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. 

    ACTIVE HARNESS

    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.

    Great Hitch!

    The hitch was actually relatively easy to install myself. It only took 2 hours and looks great because unless the the receiver is installed it is completely hidden behind the the rear facia.

    A quality product with clear instructions delivered quickly

    I installed the hitch kit on my 2016 BMW X6 with M sport package. Spoiler alert: It fit perfectly with no alterations to the vehicle required. I performed the installation in my driveway with minimal complications. The two powder coated, steel, drop brackets required having the powder coating removed from the bolt holes to allow the large mounting bolts to fit. A few minutes with a rat tailed file solved the problem and the rest of the installation was easy. I haven't had the programming performed yet, but would still recommend this product.

    Fantastic Experience, Fantastic Product

    From our initial chat session with Stealth Hitches, where I worked my way through a number of silly questions, through to the final install and usability, I've become a huge fan of Stealth Hitches. During our pre-sales steps, we received quick, accurate, and courteous information. The product arrived quickly and well packaged. The install instructions seemed so well prepared that we(my wife and I) decided to make a run at installing it ourselves. This was a scary proposition, working on the body and electronics within a $80k german car. However, the process was extremely intuitive and only took us about 2.5 hours. It was worth saving the $300 or so dollars to do ourselves. We did spend about $25 on tools at Amazon(plastic body removal tools, torx head, etc...) . I highly recommend splurging for a couple of those cheap tools to make the process much easier. The hitch looks great (in so much as you can't see it, right?!?!). It functions as advertised and seems to haul the boat really well. Our free computer programming session is scheduled for later today. This is a terrific, included value ad that's worth asking about. Not only is it designed to turn the rear view car sensors off when towing a boat(think about it), but also included are a bunch of other custom programming options that have nothing to do with the hitch, but are really awesome and worth hundreds of dollars. Truth be told, only time will tell on how well this solution holds up. I mean, it's a relatively new idea/product. But, if the quality of the materials and the initial experience is any indication, I'm sure I'll be a customer for life. Well worth it. Excellent product. Thank you Stealth Hitches!

    2017 BMW X6 Stealth Hitch

    The hitch is of very high quality and was packaged well. I installed it myself referencing the detailed instructions in about 4 hours. No cutting of my rear bumper or fascia was required and the hitch is completely invisible when not in use. The included wiring harness and module is of OEM origin and went in without any issues. I would recommend this setup highly!
