2016 BMW1-hitch install

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Scheduled to have bike hitch installed on chasis. BMW SF doesn't do this, but recommended a third party. Looked at the chasis and didn't see how this would be installed. Concerned about this hitch "wrecking" my car...fyi: I know nothing about hitches.

All suggestions welcome...and advice!

Thank you.

Have you considered a roof rack?

easy job, and does not ruin anything but a little bit of muffler heat shield.

FYI if you have stock diffuser, you don't need to cut it.

remove rear bumper
remove rear crash bar
insert hitch on studs
cut a bit of heat shield to accomodate the hitch
reinstall rear crash bar
reinstall rear bumper
