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 X6M (F86) High Performance Conversion Package.

The BMW X6M (F86) High Performance 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 X6M (F86) High Performance 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.

Totlly Stealth... Easy To Install.

I had looked at a number of different hitches for my BMW X6-M, and even the ones that claimed to be totally stealth still had 'fine print' stating that they bumper would need to be cut... Not the case with Stealth Hitches! This thing is exactly as described; completely stealth. I did the instally by myself, and it took about 2 hours to complete. The instructions that came with the hitch were straightforward and easy to follow. I'm super-pleased with my purchase, and would 100% recommend this product!

Buy this hitch no questions asked

I just purchased a brand new BMW X6M. As an engineer, I tend to over research everything before I buy so my trailer hitch research concluded with buying a Stealth Hitch. Thankfully I was only more pleasantly surprised with the actual product when it arrived. The product is amazing and I was able to install the hitch myself no problem thanks to great instructions and outstanding live customer service help when I needed it. Bottom line I would tell anyone that this is the best, premium trailer hitch on the market with the best design and an outstanding level of customer service that you just do not find anywhere these days. Buy it hands down!

Great Hitch

The installation instructions could have been more clear but after talking with the company I figured out how to properly Install it. They said they would improve the instructions. The hitch is what I expected i.e . It is completely invisible until you attach to it. It is well constructed. I would not hesitate to recommend it.
