  2. General BMW Questions
    I recently purchased a 2017 BMW X5 (and am throughly enjoying it thus far). The purpose of the purchase was for space, tow capacity and to give my 2 puppers extra space on long journeys. When I bought the car from the BMW dealership they noted for what I am towing it wouldn't be worth me...

  4. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    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...
  5. X5 F15 (2014 - 2018)
    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?
  6. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    If you have one laying around or know someone who does. Would like to buy it from you. Thanks!
  7. 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...
  8. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Does anybody know how to program the BMW OEM electrically pivoted tow hitch on the F30 model using E-Sys?
  9. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    Hi guys, I have been prowling the forums trying to figure this one out, so I apologize if this has already been answered. I have gotten through the install of the OEM BMW trailer hitch up to the point of reassembly. However, I am a bit confused because the bumper will not fit over the trailer...
  10. X5 F15 (2014 - 2018)
    Hi, I wanted to share my recent towing experience on my 2014 X5. I researched a lot about the towing abilities of the truck before buying it. It sounded like most people were happy with it but I never found anybody posting about towing near its limits for any amount of distance. So throwing a...
  11. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    Hello All, I have a 2013 BMW X3. I wanted to pull a vintage 1957 22-foot Airstream tailer, and couldn't find any definite reasons (other than vague guesses) about why the X3 should or shouldn't be used. Even my Los Angeles BMW dealer could only say, "Well, we've never heard of anyone doing it"...
  12. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    I've been doing some research online to see about a hitch for my 2013 X3. It looks like you can get a Curt 2012 and wiring for a fraction of the cost of BMW installed hitches/wiring. I've done 4 previous installations on Mazda and Lexus vehicles that required quite a bit of work (fishing...
  13. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Good day everyone, Has anyone added a trailer hitch to their 535i and pulled a motorcycle? I have a 750 pound Harley that I would like to pull to the beach, about 225 miles - all flat. I would much rather drive my car over my wife's RX350. Is this a really bad idea???? :confused:
  14. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello, I just wanted to let you know, if anyone is interested, that I am selling the hitch (removable with the key and when removed it is not visible) for 530xi 2004 - 2008. I had it shipped to me from Europe by a family member, otherwise no dealer was willing to ship it to me. It comes with the...
