    Hello, I have just installed an electrically pivoting trailer tow hitch (option 3ac I believe) How do I code this correctly into my car? I have installed it with instructions from local dealer and a retrofit kit with oem harness and modules. I have used e-sys before but am a novice e-sys'er 😅

    Hello - New around here and the proud new-ish owner of a 2018 320i (purchased last Oct, thankfully before used car prices went insane). First car purchase ever for me as a new Californian after living for almost 20 years in NYC where car ownership wasn't a thing for me. I'm a cyclist and I'm...

    Hi guys, I'm a newb here. Hoping some of you more experienced guys can give me some advice. I have never had any prior experience with towing trailers before. I will be getting a 24 feet Pontoon later in the summer and will need to get a trailer hitch installed on my 2019 X5. I went to my...

    Like the subject says curious if anyone has tried this yet? Concept seems great price isn't nearly as cheap as other hitch carriers but system seems well put together. After reading about all the roof rack whistling I can't see spending even more money to have a less convenient and more...

    When I recently decided to purchase a semi-lightweight travel trailer, I assumed it would be an easy thing to add a hitch with full trailer electrical and brake functions to my 2015 X5 35d. Little did I know I was wading into one of the more controversial and complex aspects of owning an X5...

    Hello!!! I am trying to install a brake controller (Tekonsha Prodigy P3) to me 2016 X1 xDrive, US model in order to tow a trailer with electric brakes. Brake Controller instructions said to connect its red wire to the cold wire of the brake sensor switch. However, the break switch is...

    We've got an '04 E53 X5 with what I've been told is the factory BMW trailer hitch receiver installed on all '04-up E53 X5 vehicles. I've noticed that the older E53 X5 through '03 apparently didn't come standard with a hitch, but it was an available option from BMW. I'd noticed hitches much...
  9. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi everyone! This weekend I installed an OEM hitch to my 2008 BMW X3 M Sport. After a little cutting on the rear bumper cover and little else to do I installed my OEM tow hitch that included the electric harness and the module. It was a bit hard to get the pins to align on the tow module in the...

    Stealth Hitches™ is a sponsor for this forum. We now have a completely invisible hitch for the new BMW X3 (G01). Visible bars, visible receivers and bumper cutouts are not required, nor is ground clearance sacrificed. Our “latch block” is stainless steel and all our hitch components are made...
  13. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    I'm just wondering if anyone has used a motorcycle carrier with their X3. I believe the tongue weight capacity is 350lbs, so I imagine it would be a fairly small bike? I need to tow a motorcycle fairly frequently and would love some insight. Thanks!

    So, I got a call from Invisihitch on the 12th - "We are shipping it today" I get a call from the shop on the 29th, where my 328d wagon was on a lift getting other work done, "When is the hitch going to be here?" Frustrated, I call Invisihitch and am told "never shipped", "waiting for wiring...

    Hi - relatively new to Bimmerfest and appreciate any advice/experience. I plan on towing with a new to me 2011 x5d which looks like it had a factory hitch installed (factory cut out) and has instructions on the hitch sticker 6000# max towing, 600# tongue weight. And also an interesting pic...
  16. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    Needed a 2" hitch to mount a new bike rack (Yakima Holdup 2-Bike Hitch Mount Rack with Lock Cable 2-Inch Receiver) on my 2011 X3 28i. After reviewing the options, I decided on a Curt #13107 Class 3 Trailer Hitch (their model 47). Perfect! I installed it myself, and got exactly what I wanted...
  17. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Morning all; Just new here to both the forums and the BMW X5 itself... For most of us up here in the Great White North, getting ANYTHING can be a pain! Usually at almost twice the price as our cousins south of the border pay, and usually limited on suppliers to boot! So, I have been doing some...
