Will the Curt Hitch C11498 for a 2006 BMW 530i Sit Behind Panel On Aero Rear Bumper


Hi, I would like to confirm that this hitch model would fit through the removable cover of my M-Aero bumper and if the cover can be put back on to conceal the hitch when not in use?


Expert Reply:

The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C11498 which is the only option available for a 2006 BMW 530i will install beneath the rear bumper as you can see in the attached install photo. Therefore, it will not sit behind the removable rear bumper panel on your 530i with Aero Package. I am not aware of a trailer hitch offered for the 530i that would sit behind this panel but the receiver tube is actually still hidden pretty well so this should not be too much of a concern.
