I would do it without flinching, what's your experience?

Factory hitch, driving in SoCa mostly (maybe a few hills, but no worries there).

I've towed maybe a dozen times with my last X5 (NA 3.0-liter gas) a race car with combined weight (trailer and car) of about 5,800 lbs.

I'm not easily intimidated.

Gone, but never forgotten... my E70 X5 35d, E90 335i, E46 330i, E36 328i, E70 X5 3.0si, E53 X5 3.0i.
