Pics of Curt Hitch on X6 - Cost: $350

I couldn't find any Curt hitches on X6 / E70 anywhere so I thought I'd post some here.

1. Hitch costs $150 brand new on Ebay
2. Installation at indy shop cost $200
3. I'm only using this for a bike rack so no wiring/re-programming was done
4. I tried a 2 inch rise tongue/ball on it and there was No PDC interference.
5. It replaces the original giant brace under the bumper, which mean you lose your rear tow hooks. No biggie since you still have your front tow hooks and for the rear, you have the hitch, duh

Thanks!

7RR started in 2010, it's still offered today under different names. Basically adds more power at the factory. Here's an article that I can't find anymore but I happened to have screencapped a while back:
