Tow Hitch install prices (socal)

Checking dealerships around Los Angeles. Install prices for a tow hitch average around $850-900 (no including the cost of the kit) Does anyone know of any deals or discounts.

PS. I have a 2011 BMW x5 50i.

I would trust a hitch installation from a So Cal hitch specialist - not BMW.

My last 2 hitch installations were done by Rack N Road in Costa Mesa call them @ 800-722-5872

They did a beautiful job on my 2002 X5 and 2007 328xi when I owned them.

Much more reasonable in labor & hitch cost (I used Curt Mfg for both) plus they do the electronics (trailer lighting & wiring) with the correct isolators to prevent bulb error messages.

I would love one on my current X5 but it is leased.

Have you thought about installing it yourself? There's the procedure in the DIY section

Pat_X5,
Thanks for the info. I'll look into that shop.

Ipcapital,
I think the install would be a bit much for me to handle.

Do they do programming? Camera zoom feature, disable PDC, etc..

I had mine done in Northern CA at a BMW independent for $350 or so if I recall correctly including programming. Reno Dealer quoted me more than your dealer did, but no surprise; they are taking advantage of no competition everywhere they can.

Which BMW independent did you go in Northern Cal?

Edge Motor Works in Dublin.

They spent a lot of time on it, probably more than they anticipated but they stood by their initial quote.
