Recommended Trailer Hitch for a 2010 BMW 5 Series Sedan


Ive a 2010 BMW 535xi sedan. Id like to put a hitch on it and Ive read that you have a hitch that does not bolt on is removable. But I dont see it on your site. Is there a hitch were I can leave the lower pan on the car or modify it? OK having to bolt the hitch on. Thanks

There is one trailer hitch that is a confirmed fit for your 2010 BMW 5 Series sedan. The Curt Class I trailer hitch, part # C11498 should work great for you. This is a bolt-on installation. Some underbody panels or fascia must be temporarily loosened or removed during installation.

We don't have any removable trailer hitches for your BMW 5 Series.

To see what it would take to install this hitch on your vehicle check out the picture I've attached that shows the installation instructions.

If you plan to do some towing, the hitch comes with a hitch pin and clip. For a ball mount you can use # C45521.

For a ball you can use # 19256 for a 1-7/8 inch diameter, or # 19258 for a 2 inch diameter. For trailer wiring, use # C59236. I have included a link to the installation details for the wiring as well.

This installation is on a different vehicle but can be used as a guide when installing the wiring on your vehicle.
