    I am interested in finding either a new or CPO 3.5d to use for some towing. It will be pulling a 21' boat with a total weight of around 3500 lbs. Anyone have any experience with that kind of towing, and how the X5 handles it?

    Torque. However, I***8217;ve participated in several charity plane pull events pulling a 737. I***8217;m talking a small team of people -in my case it was a bunch of office workers. So the point is that the feat is less impressive than it seems. Im a Tesla fan but their hyperbolic marketing...

    Need some help on which trailer wiring kit to buy for my F30. There's not much information out there and most online trailer companies don't have clear information on which one to use. Etrailer lists one but is $185 which seems kind of absurd when the hitch itself is only $130. Thanks!

    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...

    I can't find this anywhere previously asked... My 428i lease is expiring and I'm looking at leasing a 2018 X5 40e to use as my daily driver AND towing the boat come summertime. (Instead of leasing another 430i and buying a Tahoe/Suburban.) Anyone have serious experience towing with the BMW X5...
  10. 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!

    I just changed from VW to BMW diesel and need to replace a tow hitch. Are there precautions associated with light towing behind a 328dx? and who makes the best hitch? Are special electric boxes required?

    Hey Guys I have a 330xd that comes with a detachable tow bar. I went to attach a small un-braked trailer the other day and noticed that the tow bar doesn't have a secondary coupling point for the chains that most small trailers have. Are they unnecessary with these detachable tow bars? I...

    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...

    My buddy has an old Kawasaki in Arizona. I live in indiana, and it's 23 hour drive there. The bike only weighs about 300lbs so I don't doubt my bimmer can handle the weight. My car is in excellent mechanical condition, and only has 130,XXX miles on it. Is it an absolutely terrible idea to tow...

    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...

    I'm searching for an OEM (preferably new) BMW E53 model complete tow hitch kit. The OEM kit, the part number is 71606730925. Does anyone know of one available at a dealership or used?
  17. X1 F48 (2016 - current)
    Hello, I have received conflicting reports on what the X1 can tow, and I was wondering who out there is towing successfully. I read the 2016 can tow up to 4400 lbs., but I wasn't sure if that was with a specific type of hitch. Thanks!

    I pull a small airstream 16" 3000 lbs with my 2011 X5 35D and whenI use cruise control I end up with stability control warning lights coming at some point. Only happens when using CC and resets by restarting the car. Obviously now I quit using cc but wondered if others do and whether they...
