I'd shop around at all the BMW dealers in you area because $1,800 seems really high. I paid $1,100 for my hitch and installation at my local dealer. There is a lot more to the BMW hitch than the hitch itself. There is a bunch of reprogramming done to the vehicle. It will automatically disable the rear backup sensors when you connect a trailer, it add's a zoom on hitch function to the backup camera (which makes backing and hooking up the trailer super easy), and it alters the stability control behavior to accommodate for towing when you connect a trailer (which is a safety issue). Plus it is a hidden design so you don't really see the hitch when you aren't using it.
