Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2011 BMW 135i


Hi, do you have an installation video for a hitch on a 2011 BMW 135I? Thanks

The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" # C11184 is the only confirmed fit we currently have for your 2011 BMW 135i. We do not have a video of this installation, but I can give you some help. The rear bumper needs to be temporarily removed for hitch installation. There is no drilling required as it uses bolts already present. The exhaust must be temporarily lowered but not removed for installation so using a ratcheting strap works well to support and yet give you the needed space. Underbody panel and/or fascia must be temporarily removed and underbody trimming required but no trimming of your bumper fascia. I've attached the installation details to assist.

If you will be towing with this hitch, I recommend the ball mount # C45521, the pin # F-4, and the hitch ball # A-80 for 1-7/8 inch or # A-82 for 2 inch diameter.

For your trailer wiring, you can use the Upgraded Modulite that requires some easy splicing # 119147KIT or the # 119250KIT that requires no splicing at all. Either kit will give you a 4-way flat connector for your trailer or accessory.
