I've been reading as much as I can about tow hitches for the F25 and have gathered the information below.

    I test drove an X5 diesel. I liked it, but you could definitely feel how big it is and not very nimble compared to the X3. The other thing I find interesting is I know a ton of people with the original X5's that tow fully enclosed trailers without any problems. And the new X3's are about the same size as those old X5's. Well, people do a lot of dumb stuff. Just because you can doesn't mean you should. What about other passengers? Ever been in a good crosswind with a trailer? And that doesn't even take into account the legal ramifications if something does happen.

    My actual opinion is to buy something based on a full-sized truck. I tow a car all over the country on an open steel trailer with a diesel truck. Overkill, sure, but there is no way I'd want to go through mountains or rush-hour traffic with any less.

    Yep, I hear ya. Appreciate your thoughts and opinion. Towed the motorcycle to Texas last week. Not pushing the lb. I in New Mexico has 'em! Didn't notice any issues.

    The rear parking control has an issue with the trailer hitch installed. In the normal position, it's got red on the screen all the time. Upside-down and I get a beep and a red square once in a while. Remove the ball mount and all is good. There's a little cavity in the right rear of the cargo area that everything fits into. Thanks for the reply, Razel. Which tow hitch did you go with?

    I live across the Bay from you I'm going to have to come check out that Mojave leather! I've never seen it in person. Originally Posted by Razel.

There's a different camera view, and the parking alert is disabled in the rear when backing up. Went with the BMW tow hitch option.

    Took a few days for the dealer to install since they didn't have the software to do the upgrade. Also went with the dealer install since it involved re-programming. It's a nice set-up, with the ability to remove the shank when you're not towing, and just plug in the lights.

    I'm with bren on the towing weight--sounds like what you want to do is too heavy for the X3, especially if you include a passenger and any gear. Besides the x-winds, there's the issue of strain on the engine, not enough power left over to get out of someone's way, what happens on a hill, etc. We had it done at the port before final delivery for the dealer. As far as towing capacity goes it isn't necessarily limited by the power of the engine but rather by the overall weight of the vehicle and its brakes.
