BMW hitch on eBay

Found this little gem. Sharing in case anyone interested. Pricey, but rare.

https://www.ebay.ca/itm/184498094244

Cheers.

Not just the hitch but also the towing module (AHM) and wiring harness/plug. That's an extra $250-300 right there.



Pretty spendy still, and shipping that hitch is insane. The darn thing weighs a metric ton.

I don't get the eBay pricing on these. Last fully complete setup I sold I could only get $300 for. And it took 5 months at that to sell.

Shipping option to up here was more than double the cost of the item. But, if you're in Cali and want an original hitch....

I can buy an X5 with a hitch for a little bit more cash.

^ No joke. And then you are guaranteed the person removing it will get all the fasteners, clips, and wiring necessary without breaking anything.

Also valid. I keep looking for a rundown X5 with all the options I'm missing too

I've got the rear seat recline motors and switches but can't find the C-pillar switch plugs. I traced the wires on the wreck I pulled them from, but I can't seem to find in the harness on mine. A project for the weekend.

I've pulled a rear seat recline setup complete, but left the wiring harness in situ as it was too involved to remove it from the parts truck. You have located the rear D-pillar blue plugs for the recline switches on your truck? If so, I'd imagine the maroon colored C-pillar plugs should also be present. Most likely tucked under the aluminum channeling that is underneath the plastic trim panels under the rear windows. That's where the main harness for that area runs.

I got one on eBay about 2 months ago for $600 shipped with the module and plug/harness too. Right when it arrived I made sure everything was there, which it was! Good deals do still exist.
