Trailer Hitch prewiring on 28i vs 35i?
Hi all,

I just noticed that Trailer Hitch Prewiring (8SL) is standard on MY14 28i but not on 35i. If I want a trailer receiver (for a bike rack) on my 35i, what does this mean?

The trailer hitch wiring is also standard on the 35i. It just isn't listed for some reason, but it is there. You are all set.

I agree. I have no idea why the 8SL tow-prep wiring is listed on the 28i but is not listed on the 35i. We have installed the OEM tow harness on many 35's and the factory connectors were always present and functional.

Also, if you plan to only use the hitch for a bike rack and not for towing, you may want to consider unbundling the hitch kit. We sell the invisihitch separate from the OEM harness for exactly this reason. It saves you the cost of the harness and the reprogramming fee.
