I had the factory hitch installed yesterday. It is a very clean install, with no cutting into the bodywork and an easily removable 2" receiver. It fits snugly under the rear bumper in front of the muffler and is visible from a distance, but does not protrude when the receiver is removed. The switches have spring loaded trap door covers, and there is a snap-in plastic cover for when the receiver is out.

The receiver pops in and then locks with a twist of a knob, with color coding for correct positioning, and then is key lockable for theft prevention.

Pricey, but nicely engineered. The PDC is modified so that when you have a trailer electrically connected, rear pdc sensors are not active.
