Anybody have any options on the Curt Trailer Hitch

Looking to add this to our BMW. It's close to $300 less than what' BMW charges for their trailer hitches. Any thoughts.

Iíve used Curt and other trailer hitches from E trailer on all our cars and never had an issue.

Etrailer.com also does a great job with installation videos. Usually BMWs need to remove the full bumper so itís a bit more work.

Yeah, I saw that. Doesn't deter me. I'm going to have my local BMW mechanic install it anyway. Thanks for your thoughts.

FWIW it's not hard, just more time consuming. This was what the worst stage of my F30 install looked like.



Probably took 3 hours instead of 1 hour, not sure what your shop will charge you in labor.
