I have a new F30 328i and would like to be able to transport my recumbent cycle. What is the difference between the BMW3S12 and the BMW3S30-BR?

I have a SportRack for my recumbent bike that requires a Class III receiver. It might be nice to have the capability of towing a utility trailer at some future point in time. Is the 3S12 simply the 3S30-BR plus a wiring harness?

Here is the SportRack attached to my 1996 Impala SS:
