I own a 2012 128i BMW. This product fits great and gets the job done. Shipping was quick and this product is offered at a fair price. 225679


The trailer hitch has been a huge help. Towed my motorcycle 1,000 miles across country with no issues. Towed a few other things here there, mainly to and from autocross races. The hitch is a perfect fit. Thanks for the follow-up, I really respect you and the company for going above and beyond.

Pros: Very strong and well made. Looks great on car. Con: A 128i Convertible does not have a Rear Bumper Fascia (as shown in installation instructions), just an entire Rear Bumper Cover. Was unable to remove Bumper Cover. Did get hitch installed with persistence and nimble fingers as space is very limited. Took 2 hours to install. 17985


Hello Jeff, I have the 128i convertible also. Did you have to cut the bumper cover or did you just have to work within the constraints of the bumper cover being in the way? Thanks. Bill

Bill, I worked within the constraints of the bumper cover. JeffB

I purchased this hitch for my 2009 BMW 128 convertable. It is great I don't have to worry about scratching my car with a trunk mounted bike rack. I also still have access to the trunk with the bike rack installed in the hitch. I also have a BMW 328 wagon that I tried to get a hitch for in 2012 but there wasn't an aftermarket hitch available then but there is now. I am going to get one for this car also. Installation: after seeing the instructions I realized that I had to remove the rear bumper so I took it to a pro to instal and it took 2 hours. N 212449

I purchased a hitch from etrailer for my bmw 1 series and the video and instructions were spot on in terms of easy installation and putting everything back the way it came off. I mainly use the hitch for my bike rack but i have used it to haul small trailers with tongue weight less than 200 lbs and overall 800 lbs or less total trailer weight. It is a great hitch, well coated and protected and was really easy to put on. 277901

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?

  • Muffler of 2010 BMW 1 Series Rattles Against Recently Installed Hitch
  • I have not had any specific feedback on that vehicle, but having a muffler rattle against a hitch is a fairly common occurrence that is easily repairable. Because an exhaust system is meant to move on its hangers, it does not sit in a fixed position, and this position can vary a bit from vehicle to vehicle. If you look at the FAQ article I have linked you to, you can see some different strategies like slightly bending the exhaust hangers to provide more clearance between the hitch and...

  • Which Trailer Hitch and Locking Anit-Rattle Device Fits a 2010 BMW 128i Coupe
  • The Curt Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver with Drawbar, # 11184, will fit your 2010 BMW 128i Coupe. As far as the rattling goes, we have not received any comments regarding rattling. However, if there is rattling, it could be a few things causing the noise. First, it may not be the hitch, but something that is loose from installing the hitch. If everything is re-assembled correctly according to the instructions (linked below) rattling is less likely. Also, it is important to torque the...

  • Instructions for Trimming Under Body Panel on a BMW 1 Series 135i
  • The under body panel that needs to be trimmed is at the rear of the vehicle underneath behind the rear fascia. The rear fascia itself will not need to be trimmed. Detailed trimming information is provided in the installation instructions, see drawing and instructions link. The best way to trim these parts is to take them off the vehicle and use a Dremel with cut off disc. A steady hand is required, and the edges can be touched up with a small file. A razor knife is also an option, but...

  • Does Curt Trailer Hitch C11184 Fit a 2013 BMW 128i Convertible
  • The Curt Hitch part # C11184 that you referenced is confirmed to fit a 2013 BMW 128i convertible and would probably take a dealership about an hour to install. We had a customer come back and say it took them 2 hours but a dealership would be able to knock it out much quicker.

  • How to Carry Bikes on a 2013 BMW M135i Hatchback
  • Unfortunately, the Curt # C11184 has not been confirmed to fit on your 2013 BMW M135i Hatchback. I contacted Curt to see if they had ever test fit it and they have not. Your other options, which I know aren't what you're looking for, are a trunk mount rack or a roof rack. The Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top Trunk Mount Bike Rack # HRF2 will be the best fit for a hatchback. However, the BMW has a soft bumper and this might not be a great optoin if you're going to be carrying the bikes...

  • Does the Curt Trailer Hitch # C11184 Fit a 2012 BMW 128i Convertible
  • Yes, the Curt Trailer Hitch, part # C11184, is a confirmed fit for your 2012 BMW 128i Convertible. There is no drilling required but you will need to do some underbody trimming and you will need to temporarily lower the exhaust and remove your rear bumper for the installation. If you are planning on towing I recommend using the Curt Class II Drawbar, part # C45521, along with the Curt Hitch Ball, part # A-82, but you will want to do some measuring first to make sure that it is the proper...
