Why not just have 2 bumpers? They do it for the M-Sport, etc..

I know little what I speak of but you would think that the X5 design folks would know that since it can haul 6000 lbs "lets make it easy for everyone involved and have a hitch design with NO cutting involved" or at least have it "hitch ready" for those that have a use for it.. Of course that would make them go further and think about window problems, battery problems, RFT problems and a host of other well known issues that do not change over years of failures. I ' just saying.....

I have one on order, lol
