28 vs 35 for Towing purposes

I know a lot of you drive your 35 Msports like race cars but a big reason we are considering the X3 is because it is an SUV (or SAV).

Anybody know if there are different ratings for the 28 vs 35i as far as towing capacity? I know the threads where people have gotten the hitch installed usually throw out a number of 3500 lbs as the limit.

The only difference I can find online is that the order guide says the 28 comes with "8SL Trailer hitch prewiring" whereas the 35i does not seem to come with this. Does that mean it would be easier / cheaper to install a hitch on the 28?
