1,000 - 1,500 lbs. Nothing larger than that very small U-Haul. I would not tow with it for a long distance.

That's pretty funny to see a 3 towing anything!

Sounds about right.

Realoem lists a 'multi-trailer' as a universal accessory, not sure what the capacity of this is.

If you think a 3er looks odd towing a trailer, clearly you've never been to Europe.

There, it's just another family car.
