Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver and Recommended Ball Mount for a 2006 BMW 530xi Wagon


My understanding is that the Curt 11182 is for a 2006 BMW 530 Wagon. Is that correct? Also, I understand the Curt C45510 is the correct ball mount. Is that correct as well? Thanks!


Expert Reply:

You are correct, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11498 is designed specifically for the 2006 and 2007 model years of the BMW 530xi Wagon.

You are also correct that the Curt # C45510 is the recommended ball mount for the 5 Series wheher you have the sedan or the wagon.

In addition, the hitch balls to fit the ball mount require a 3/4 inch shaft like # C40018 for a 2 inch ball or # C40001 for a 1-7/8 inch ball. The pin and clip is # F-4

Finally for a wiring harness I recommend # 119147KIT. This gives you a 4-way trailer connector at the rear of your BMW to power the trailer's lights.
