Trailer Hitch - Possible?

Hey guys,

I realize most of us would never (ever) consider towing something behind our F01/02, but I want to see if it is possible of if anyone has done this. I am planning on taking the Ducati to Willow Springs later this spring and wanted to see the options for towing a single motorcycle trailer. Already have the trailer picked out and just need to evaluate options.

Cheers!

I have never seen anything for the F01/F02. Seen stuff for the E60.

I may have to get a tow hitch just so I can valet my 7 series with a boat linked to it.

Sure cannot find a trailer hitch for a 2012, 750LI via looking at Invisi-hitch in many ways. Isthere a web site somewhere someone can direct me to? TIA

Did you ask your dealer? There's one on the accessories catalogue.

Just got back from Beverly Hills BMW and they informed me there are no factory trailer hitch options on any of their cars. Bummer!

Thank you. Confirms my findings, or no findings to date. Real bummer. The car does have the ability. Thanks for the info.
