Draw-Tite Tested Tough

Draw-Tite Tested Tough

Draw-Tite's Tested Tough program provides testing standards far superior to those outlined by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), the go-to source for engineering professionals.



Each Draw-Tite trailer hitch receiver undergoes extensive fatigue testing and static testing with the ball mount that is either supplied or recommended for use with that particular hitch, thus ensuring results that are applicable to real life use. Fatigue testing is also conducted on hitches rated for use with weight-distribution systems.


In addition, Draw-Tite performs static testing on a simulated automobile, as opposed to the rigid fixture used for SAE testing, resulting in a more true-to-life scenario.

Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2017 BMW X5 - Draw-Tite

Today on our 2017 BMW X5, we're going to be taking a look at, and showing you how to install, the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 75600. Now, this is what our hitch looks like when it's installed. You can see the cross tube is completely hidden behind the bumper. All you can see is the receiver tube. It's going to be a class three hitch. It's going to be two inch by two inch.

This front hole here is going to be for your hitch pin. It's going to be 5/8th inch in diameter. This back hole here is going to be for a J-Pin stabilization device only. What that's going to do is going to take the shake and play out of any of your hitch mount accessories. This has a nice loop style safety chain rings, give you plenty of room for different size safety chains. It's going to have a 600 pound max tongue weight, which is the downward pressure on the inside of the receiver tube.

It's going to have a 6,000 pound max trailer weight, and that's going to be your trailer plus your load included. Now, you can use weight distribution with this and the weights will stay the same. I do recommend checking your owner's manual to make sure your vehicle can withstand that amount of weight. What you want to do is you want to pick the lower weight between your hitch and your vehicle. Now, we will give you a couple of measurements to help you when deciding on any hitch mount accessories you may need, such as a bike rack, ball mount or cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost part of the bumper will be about two and a half inches.

From the ground to the top innermost part of the receiver tube will be about 13 and a half inches. Now, let's show you how to get this installed. First thing we need to do to start our installation is we're going to remove these two popper 00:01:32 bits here. Now, they're just plastic and your kit comes with replacements. What we're going to do is gently pry it out on the wheel well trim piece here. What we're trying to do is there's a couple of bolts back here we need to access for our bumper.

We're going to use an eight millimeter socket to remove this bolt, repeat that on the other side of the vehicle. We're going to need to move these bolts here on the bottom of the bumper fascia, then you're going to have one here and then two in the back. You're going to have the same thing on the other side. Next thing you're going to want to do is we want to take out our reflectors and our bumper fascia. What we're going to do is this very middle one here, we're going to push up on that center part and we're going to push the reflector out. The reason we take our reflectors out is because we want to get to these bolts. Again, we're using an eight millimeter socket and we're going to do the same thing on the other side of the vehicle. Our next step is to go inside, so that's what we want to do is we want to gain access to this panel. We're just going to lift it out. We're going to pull back this here, and what we want to do is we're going to unplug the taillight. We're just going to squeeze to unplug it. We're going to take a wrench and we'll take those out and pull our taillight out. Again, with the same socket, eight millimeter, we're going to take out these nuts right here. We'll just gently remove our taillight. The reason for removing our taillights is to gain access to this bolt right here. Again, using the same socket, eight millimeter, we're going to remove this bolt and we're going to do this on both sides of the vehicle. Next thing we want to do is we want to support our bumper here. We're going to take a strap, we're just going to hook it on here. Hook it up to the top. We just want to pull it enough to get it up off our bumper so when we pull our bumper off, we get the clips out. Just a little tip, when we're taking the bumper off, what I'm going to do is I'm going to take a piece of electrical tape. I'm going to put it right here on this edge, so that when we're putting it back in, because this is still in place, that when these two meet, because we're going to be fitting it in place, when these two are hitting together, it doesn't do any damage to the edge of this and it doesn't scratch anything. Again, just going to take a piece of electrical tape. Stick it right on the edge of this. Once we get our hitch put on and our bumper put back in place, this will be in place. We can just peel the tape off. Now, you're going to want to do this on both sides. Next what we're going to do is we're going to go ahead and remove our bumper fascia. We're just going to gently pry it out, we're going to start from the outside and move our way to the middle. Now that we've worked the outside of the bumper off, what we're going to do, we're going to come inside here and we're going to push these little tabs down. We're going to inaudible 00:04:40 we're just going to pry out on these tabs here. Next what we're going to do is we're going to unplug our sensor wire. We're going to push down on the top and up on the bottom. Then, we're going to set our bumper on the side. Next thing we're going to do is we're going to remove our bumper beam. We're going to take out these four nuts here on this side, and we're going to do the same thing on the other side. Before we take our bumper beam completely off, we got to take this sensor off right here. All that we're going to do is we're going to push in and pull that wire out. We're going to unclip the wire from the clips. When you get to this outside, you're going to want to pull that out. Use a tool, a screwdriver will work. I'm going to use this pry tool here. Now that we have our sensor wire off, we'll go ahead and take the last two nuts off that are holding our bumper beam on. We're going to pull our bumper beam off. We're just going to set that down, because we're going to reinstall it. The next thing we're going to do is we're going to take our hitch, go ahead and put it into place. That's going to go onto the existing bolts that are there. Now that we have our hitch in place here, we'll go ahead and set our bumper beam back over the top of this and then reinstall our factory nuts we took off. Once we have all our hardware in place, we'll go ahead and tighten everything down. Next what we're going to do is we're going to torque everything down as specifications in the instructions. Next thing we're going to do is we're going to reinstall our sensor wire, plug it back in. Now, with an extra set of hands, we'll go ahead and put our bumper back on. First, we're going to connect our rear sensors back up. Then, from there, what we're going to do is we're going to start in the middle. We're going to get these inaudible 00:06:46 back in place. Once we get our tabs in place, we're going to work our way around to the outside of the bumper, just connecting it as we go. Now, you want to remember when you get around to the side, you're going to make sure that you pull this out and put this inside first. The next thing we're going to do is we're going to reinstall these screws here. We're going to do the same thing on the other side of the vehicle. We'll go ahead and reinstall these screws. Again, we'll do the same thing on the other side of the vehicle. Once we have this screw in down here, we can go ahead and reinstall our reflector. That'll just pop right into place. Do the same thing on the other side. Once we have these in, we'll go ahead and put our taillights back in place. Go ahead and plug our taillight back in, reinstall the two nuts. We're going to do the same thing on the other side of the vehicle. Next what we're going to do is we're going to go ahead, remove our tape and reinstall our screw here on the side. Once we get that installed, go ahead and put our trim piece back into place. We're going to do the same thing on the other side of the vehicle. The next thing we're going to do is we're going to reinstall our screws down here on the bottom of the bumper. We're going to reinstall this one, we're going to reinstall these two back here and we're going to do the same thing on the other side of the vehicle. Now, we'll go ahead and replace our rivets. That'll do it for the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 75600, on our 2017 BMW X5.

Your trailer hitch and wiring harness for my 2015 BMW X-5 worked perfectly, and it was a fraction of the cost I would have spent at the BMW dealership. It took my personal mechanic just over 2 hours to install. Your product does not mess with the BMW Computer and does not need to reprogram. EXCELLENT!!! I would purchase this item again in a heartbeat. 653251

I would have given 5 stars except for the plastic rivets. Nobody has the special plastic rivet tool in my town. I looked at 4 different auto parts and hardware stores. I own a rivet tool but the size of the shaft of the rivets provided do not fit any of the multiple sizes available on the tool I own. I will go to the auto parts store and purchase an alternative to the rivets. Also, I own a 2011 BMW X5 and the cutout suggested in the video, 8"x2" did not work. I had to cut out the plastic to 8"x2 1/2". Other than that, it was an easy installation. 662474

This etrailer video (https://www.etrailer.com/tv-install-trailer-hitch-2017-bmw-x5-75600.aspx) for this product made what would have been a very difficult process for somebody unfamiliar with removal of the trim/fascia on the X5 very straightforward. The video was far more important and accurate than the Draw-Tite instructions and not only drastically cut the install time for me, it probably saved me from damaging the vehicle and fascia connection points. The filming and mech/technician who did this video were outstanding in every respect! 556650

Installed on 2017 X5 i35 MSport package. Arrived faster than expected, and in perfect condition. Printed and video instructions are outstanding. Completely installation in 2.5 hour. Purchased the tools I need with the savings - a bonus for sure. Picked up a nice torque wrench for $50, a plastic rivet gun and rivet puller for $35, Bmw OEM plastic rivets; 10 for $8 (totally not needed, the hitch comes with good plastic rivets). Take your time, watch the video a few times , use the right tools, and you won’t have an issue. I did not have cut the bumper at all. The fit is perfect and the bumper does not come in contact with the hitch at all. As well, the video is spot on. My only real tip is to go slowly. Be super careful with the bumper sensor connector. I accidentally broke one of the tabs. It absolutely had no impact on reconnecting it. Other than that, have an extra set of hands ready for the pulling and refitting of bumper. etrailer has put a lot of thought in to making the process as easy as possible. Best of luck - you can do this. 511727

Paper and video instructions provided were very helpful. The hardest part during installation was to take off the slim side fender on the M-Sport X5. It says to pull gently but you really have to pull away with pressure but carefully. Overall very easy to install with basic tools in garage. 555364

Bought the hitch and wiring harness from etrailer.com last year, and following their excellent video installation instructions, was able to complete the installation in only a couple of hours. (Would take about half that time to do it again, always worried about breaking something!) Everything has worked flawlessly, and we have been completely satisfied with the purchase and support. Will definitely return the next time we're in the market for hitch related products. 515247

My local shop installed this for me and it appears to be very solidly in place on my BMW X5. I will be using this to attach a bicycle rack and haven't used the hitch for that yet, but I expect no problems. 558105

This trailer hitch is a great fitting product. But the VIDEOS on etrailer's website were amazing. This made it possible for me to install myself on our 2009 bmw x5. I would not have been able to install without tearing stuff up, without the great videos. I am halfway technical and can do a lot on cars. But figuring out fender rivets, and body panel clips is a new challenge. I was worried I would break a part, scratch some paint, or not be able to do it in a decent amount of time. But with etrailers videos and awesome product this went great. One suggestion; I cut an 8" wide x 2 1/4" deep area when removing material from my bumper cover as suggested on the video. It seemed like the bumper cover was flexing around the hitch. So I had to remove it, and cut another 1/2". I would recommend cutting 2 3/4" of plastic out the first time to make it a more efficient process for installation and fitting. I have been a long time customer due to their customer service. And the receiver hitch that fit perfect an excellent experience all around. 386375

I chose the Drawtite hitch because it retains use of the rear emergency tow eyes. Have a few installation pointers that will make it easier for the next guy. I have a 2011 X5 with the Sport Package and back up sensors. The instructions I received were Revision D, 3-27-2017. 1. (Step 1) Disconnecting the back up sensor require dainty but strong fingers. Also, the car side connector is held captive on the vehicle but must be relocated as it will get pinched hard when the hitch is installed. You can strap it up when you are done. Also, the harness is attached to the impact bar. Easy to pull off and reinstall. The routing of the harness with the hitch installed causes a rub point. I put split loom on the hitch and the harness to prevent chaffing. 2. (Step 1a) To remove the pop rivets, I found a sharp utility knife works best to cut the heads off. Make sure the remnants are pushed through before the bumper is reinstalled. Both the top ones were stuck and it would have been easier if I had noticed with the bumper off. I had to hold the new rivet pin with a utility knife between the rivet and the gun to hold it while getting the second grip on it with the rivet gun which barely fit with the tire on. Otherwise the pin will just push back into the hole. 3. (Step 1a) In the illustration, it points to a lower rivet at the wheel opening and states: "Do Not remove Plastic pop rivets". On mine they were reusable push pins and they had to be removed to get the bumper cover off. 4. (Step 1b) To remove the wheel well molding, pull straight away from the vehicle. 5. (Step 1f) I used two flat screw drivers to pop the four retaining tabs under the tailgate. It's a lot easier if you align these as you put the bumper back on - not wait until the sides are buttoned up - experience talking here. 6. (Step 1g) At the tail lights, the tab release is on the bottom (photo #1707). There are three nuts (8mm socket) holding the tail lights on. 7. (Step 1h) To remove the forward portion of the bumper cover, pull the leading edge away and you'll see three locking tabs at the horizontal gap that if you hit them with a thin trim tool, they'll release easily. (photo #1705) 8. (Step 2) It is a good idea to remove the plastic trim piece above the impact bar. The impact bar will hang up on it when it comes out. It will also hang up when you reinstall and in my case, I cracked it when the impact bar caught it as I was bolting it all together. You can see the impact bar sit up into a hole of the piece in photo 1708. Apply lube to the studs before removing nuts. I had three that came off hard, one terribly so until I ran it back tight an added lube. The plastic decorative covers on the impact bar studs do not grip well or at all with the added hitch thickness. I cleaned the bolts off with brake clean and used RTV to hold in place 9. (Step 6) The drawing states to cut a 2" deep 8" wide clearance slot in the rear fascia for hitch clearance but I ended up with 2.5" and it was just right. At two inches the lower fascia pops out of the bumper cover. Hope this helps! 636455

Installed it on my 2014 BMW X5 with M-Sport package. I was concerned because many hitch sites claim you have to trim the bumper to make it fit. With this hitch I had to do no such thing. It was easy to install. I would have liked to see slightly rounded corners on the flat plate above the receiver as they are a little sharp and would look cleaner with a slight roundness. Like most hitches, it clunks a little when the trailer is hooked up, would be nice to see some kind of rubber insert to fill any gaps between the receiver and the hitch. Overall, I'd recommend the hitch. 502475

will put pressure on the ball mount and force it to sit up tight against the inside of the receiver tube, for a more quiet ride.

If your contemplating on which hitch to get, The Draw-Tite, Reece and Hidden Hitch are identical. Mine actually had a sticker with both names on it. Like others have said, the powder coat chips easily, mine had minor chips from shipping. This didn't bother me, before I installed it, I coated the entire hitch with 1 Qt. Herculiner Bed Liner. If your worried about long term use and rust, coat it with a rubber compound. Installation took 1/2 day. Hardest part was removing and re-installing the fascia (plastic bumper). I had to trim a 2"x8" of the lower fascia. Hitch looks nice on my 2011 BMW X5 35d and 1/4 the cost of the dealership. Works with rear sensors and the screw in attachments are still available. 36764

Very quick delivery from etailer for Drawtite 75600. Installation videos and written instructions were extremely helpful and key to success. Although not specific to my 2015 BMW X5, they allowed me to prepare and then install the hitch in 3 hours. Fit was perfect and did not require cutting the bumper fascia. An indentation was already formed in the bumper to clear the hitch. Access to a poly riveter and per-purchasing BMW replacement rivets facilitated rapid completion. 196864

Which trim package did you get on your X5? I ordered a 2015 X5 35d with the M Trim package so Im worried it will require cutting the actual bumper. My 2013 35d had the hitch installed at the dealership, and they cut a large square out of my bumper itself since the OEM hitch comes straight out instead of dipping below the number.

What was different from your 2015 install process vs what is in the video for the 2012 anything else I should know before starting on my 2015 x5?Also how was the reassembly there is not much mention of that part of the process.

I do not recall anything much different from the video, other than not needing to make any trimming adjustments to the bumper. Having a second person available to assist in getting the hitch initially aligned when installing helped. Pretty straight forward.

For 2015 BMW X5: Great product. Excited to start hooking things up to haul, like my bike rack. Installation was tedious, but the installation video was a tremendous help. Overall it took probably 5 hours to do it myself, I only needed my kids at one point to help me lift the hitch onto the frame from the low angle, but otherwise I was pretty proud of myself for doing it on my own. There WERE some points where I definitely thought I had hit insurmountable challenges and nearly regretted my decision to do the install, but after some time, patience and elbow grease, I was successful in overcoming those obstacles. The rear sensor component plugged into the interior of the facia was a PAIN to remove. I eventually had to get under the vehicle and use needle nose pliers to fully pop open those tabs. You’ll need a deep 18mm socket to pull those lock nuts off. I even added a 6-in extension piece to ensure I could get in deep enough, and it just made clearance with about an inch or two to spare for non-issue rotation with your wrench. Some of those nuts were TOUGH to get off. I was worried I would encounter the same issue that many others had where they were forced to trim the underside of the facia to accommodate the hitch, but I did not have that issue. In fact, there was an indention there already, as if made for a hitch. Keep GOOD track of all your screws and parts. I drew out a diagram and placed all the pieces there to keep track. I didn’t have the luxury of having a second vehicle to make trips to the auto store, so I had to make sure I had everything I needed before pulling the vehicle apart. Otherwise, seemingly great product. Great build. Very excited to start hauling. Thank y’all so much for this inexpensive but quality product, and the work you put into making those instructional videos. Great company. 479018

Great hitch for the price! Very study and looks clean on the X5 without any bumper cutting, drilling, etc. Some notes to people considering buying this hitch from a BMW X5. I installed this myself in 3-4 hours. It required me to remove the entire bumper panel from the vehicle, and required me to get a couple small parts to reattach the bumper and trim around the wheel well. The instructions online were more helpful than the instructions that came with the hitch. If I were to do this over, I would have spent the extra $100-$200 and had a professional install the hitch. I ended up scratching my bumper, and the trim around the wheel well never really fit right again. No one could notice it, but I knew it was there and it drove me nuts. 559063

Searched for a hitch that did not require a visible section of the bumper fascia to be cut out of the X5. This hitch did not and tucks neatly under the fascia. You rated the installation difficulty 9/10, and I believe this was accurate. Fit and finish was great. Not a fan of having the connection to the trailer a long cord that hangs out the tail gate when in use. I routed the wire down to the hitch before re-installing the bumper fascia and attached it with a bracket. Installation and wiring videos are excellent and key to the success for the DIY individual. Upon ordering, etrailier reported the hitch was in stock, but this turned out to not be the case. Etrailer customer service were great at keeping me informed and minimized the delay. Well done! 101240


Comments

I am curious...You mentioned not having to cut the fascia but the instructions state that it needs to be cut. Can you help me understand if the instructions are wrong or if different year or trim of the car makes a difference? Thanks

The visible section of the bumper fascia does not need to be trimmed, which is what Greg mentioned in his review. There is an under-fascia that is below the bumper and not really visible when standing. It is attached to the bumper cover, but is a separate piece that is not the same color as the rest of the body. This piece will need to be trimmed. You can see the procedure starting at about the 4:50 mark in the video.

Smooth install! 2008 BMW X5 Only one minor change in the instructions, the bumper fascia trimming needed to be about 3" deep instead of the 2 inches indicated in the included instructions. I should however mention the my X5 has the M package which has a slightly different rear bumper fascia and the extra trimming may be unique to the M but I'm not sure. see pictures looking up at the hitch that show the required trimming. The trimming is not visible unless you look at it from a vantage point that is below the level of the bumper. I am very happy with the look and ease of install. 285369

The product is definitely top notch quality. However, the install took me 4 hours and I had to visit my BMW dealer for assistance with the rivets. Although the instructions were very helpful, and the video top notch! I wasnt very experienced and didn't get all the right tool. The hardest part for me was to get the 4 bolts off and on without a proper drill socket. I had to do it by hand. Also, I didn't have to cut into the number as recommended on the video. The number fit nicely on top with plenty of space in between. So I am not sure what the deal is with cutting into the number. I have a 2016 X5 standard model. 411729

Easy install. This was for a 2007 BMW X5. Watch all the videos. I was confused about removing the front portion of the rear bumper, but I just had to use a little force. Some instructions don’t explicitly say to reinstall the crash bar- just make sure you do that so you don’t have to take the bumper off a second time to install. Also make sure you clip the parking sensors back on to the bumper while it is off, that way you don’t have to take the bumper off a third time, like I did. Install took me about 2 hours, even with removing the bumper 3 times. Also I did not trim the bumper- it wasn’t necessary on my model. 545116

First, I want to thank you for your custom service support. It's nice to know that in an industry flooded with choices, you recognize the importance of customer support. Now for my critique… The hitch was installed as per the instructions however I have two suggestions. 1) The decorative crash bar nut covers (depicted in the attached photo) would not screw back on either because the lack of ample threads due to the hitch being installed and required RTV to reattach. 2) There is no place to secure the wire harness (w/o purchasing your extra bracket) however I was able to stuff the harness (folded on itself) in the square tubing on the back side of the hitch as depicted in the attached photo. Putting a trailer hitch on some vehicles should not require exposed bracketry and wire harnesses but rather an inconspicuous add-on to maintain the as much of the ascetics and beauty of that vehicle which separates a "quality kit" from those installed from the "shop down the road". 482367

I am mechanically inclined (thanks dad!) and so after finding out that my local Uhaul would charge $225 to install a hitch not purchased from them, decided to just do it myself as I had originally planned when I bought this hitch from eTrailer.com. The most cringe-worthy part of this installation is that feeling of ripping the side of the rear bumper cover of your beautiful late model X5 apart and hearing those nasty popping sounds as evidenced in the video. Lest you feel you need to spend $150-$225 to have someone else install this hitch, I will attest to the fact that it is not that bad at all. If you change your own oil, rotate your own tires, or don't ever have to pause and recite "lefty loosey, righty tighty" then you're a great candidate to perform your own installation! The video was key to making this an easy installation. I put my laptop on a bench next to my car while I played/paused each step and simply followed along. The toughest part of the installation was unclipping the rear bumper sensor wiring harness. It just did not want to release. That took me a good 25 mins. This installation is definitely a two person job. I would never attempt this without a good helper with steady hands. A second person is definitely needed when realigning the rear bumper tabs with the rear bumper mounts and side mounts when buttoning everything back up. I had to cut out a little extra space in the lower rear bumper fascia to get everything to sit right. I have the X5 50i with M Sport Pkg, so the rear bumper has additional design features that I do not believe are shared with the other trim levels. Three test fits and it was good to go. The only thing I did not like about this kit was the supplied plastic rivets. The instructions call for a 5/32" rivet tool, which I have. The plastic rivets do not fit into the rivet tool. Not only that, but they did not actually fasten at all. I have to goto BMW tomorrow to buy OEM ones. Minor flaw, and I believe I read the other reviews with similar findings. No biggie, but it would be nice to have better quality rivets. I am very satisfied with this hitch and the installation instructions. Here are some pics of my bike rack installed in the hitch on my 2013 X5 50i M Sport. :) 343403

I fitted this on a 2016 X5 30d w/ M Sport Package. NO CUTTING of the fascia was necessary. I'm based in Hong Kong though, so not sure if the X5 here is slightly different in any way. LOVE the fact that etrailer.com has actual experts who know their stuff answering my most tedious questions, and to make me feel confident ordering something heavy like this from US. 269343

Easy to install, bolted right on (after the bumper was removed, which was pretty easy too!). Also on some other brands of hitches for the 2007 BMW X5 it would make the tow screws unavailable, but this hitch leaves them available and not blocked! Also the best part is that the bumper face did not need to be cut which is better than even the OEM one from BMW! (you do need to cut a small part off but that is facing the ground so you dont even see it!). 30516

All of the hitches we carry for the 2007 BMW X5 do no require drilling additional holes into the vehicle, but the may require some fascia or panel trimming.

Perfect fit and relatively easy install. Works great. A little low, but a riser hitch took care of that issue. Just have to be careful with my cargo basket. It sometimes drags, but not too bad. I'm happy with it, and it sure beats the BMW price for theirs. 697851

The receiver area suffered a half inch paint chip that exposed the steel to the air, without a doubt it will corrode in that spot. The packing should be improve to avoid that type of damage, that damage is significantly reduces the corrosion protection. 675054

Well hidden, clean-looking design, and appears to be excellent quality. Provides very good clearance above concrete curbs (if backing up vehicle into a parking spot) even though it sits low beneath bumper. The 4-pin wiring could've been better concealed by installer, but they suggested I can zip-tie to hitch to hide from view. Looking forward to testing it out on the road soon. 657406

Installed on 2017 X5 i35 MSport package. Although the listing states "excluding M performance models" by the manufacturer, it fit perfectly! I had my laptop in my garage and was following the instruction video as I was going through the process. I read other reviews and gave myself plenty of time to not rush and break anything. I bought a set of plastic pry tools for $8 to not scratch the plastic parts on removal. It took my about 3 hours which includes a trip to Lowe's to buy a longer socket to take out the 4 bumper beam nuts. I did not have to cut the bumper fascia and hitch comes out the back with a 1/4 inch clearance from plastic. 647716

I am giving 5 stars because the product is great and the videos make it very easy for anyone to install. For the BMW X5 trailer hitch the cut out to the bumper trim should be about 2.5" rather than 2". The bottom center two screws under the bumper trim will not install if you only cut 2". One of my back up sensors broke loose and I glued back on with JB Weld. The light harness was easy to install when following the direction and the kit was complete. One of the quick wire connectors broke and there were no spares. The green wire for the passenger side blinker was about a foot short. 647991

Arrived on schedule. Packaging was a little beat up, but the hitch showed no signs of damage. Reading all of the comments about how hard this would be to install almost scared me away from doing it. It wasn't nearly as bad as many said. It took less than 90 minutes with two of us. The hardest part is getting the fascia back on correctly. I'd give this a 5/10 difficulty rating. The on-site videos were helpful, though the part that shows how to pop the reflectors out wasn't very good and we ended up busting the plastic clips on one of them. I haven't used it yet, but it seems plenty sturdy. All in all, no complaints. 645083

The other reviews are right about the plastic rivets. The wheel well piece snaps back on but I still need to go to dealer to get the right rivets. I haven't towed my boat yet, but the way this bolted on I'm sure it won't be a problem. 643713

I have a 2013 BMW XDrive35i with the M Sport Package and the Performance Package - but it is not a real full-blown M version. The hitch fit fine, but I did have to remove a 2.25 inch by 8-inch chunk of the bumper cover. That is pretty typical for the installation on the non M Sport Package. Liked the fact that I can still use the tow hooks going into the bumper. Removing the bumper was easier than re-installing it. Wasn't so bad except for all of the rivets at the wheel wells. There was another piece that fell off on both sides that needed rivets and even though I have like a 200-piece plastic rivet assortment, I felt I was trying to attach gossamer wings. And there was no squeeze lever for the reflectors. I looked in there with a powerful flashlight and didn't seem anything to release them. Felt around, too. Pried them out and something in the middle of each of them broke. I ended up using some adhesive caulk to make sure they stay in now. BMW's always changing stuff. 639463
