Hitch

Hi guys,

I have a 95, 325i. I was wondering if anyone has a hitch installed on any 3 series bimmers? I want to tow my snowmobile without having to buy a pick-up truck. Has anyone ever towed anything heavy during the winter with your 3 series? Can anyone recommend any hitch installation places?

Thanks

I custom made one for my 95 e36, I tow my seadoo with it all the time in the summer with no problems. I only found 1 aftermarket hitch that looked really flimsy.

I had my hitch installed in Victoria so that probably won't help you out much. Sorry! It was about $150 parts and labour if I remember correctly
