    Those nice German people went to all the trouble to put my car together, and the first thing I do is take it apart!

    Execuhitch installed. This thing is slick. No receiver sticks out because it comes off completely when not in use. Also when you do have the receiver installed, it's locked via a key. Super quick and easy to uninstall.

    You're turning black metallic.

It's super quick to install the receiver, and it uses a keyed lock, so secure as well. Absolutely nothing hags down or is exposed, very slick.Rack suggestions needed for BMW X5-01b941fe206cdd9782cbf7c82f518614bf1f4f9a00.jpg

    Hitch rack

It's supposedly very sturdy and I like being able to remove in minutes.
    I installed a hitch rack on my X5 for $250, took a little over an hour. I run an inexpensive Bell platform rack ($100 from Walmart). Put everything from my Fattie to a DH bike on there.

    I also pull a boat with the hitch, so I think it can handle the bike rack.

    Sure I went cheap, bit how else can I afford a BMW?

    I read all these posts with the thought that it was Ron Burgundy having a conversation with Ron Burgundy...
