SOLD FS E28 TRAILER HITCH

Post by Bonsaibacker »

As the title states- I am selling a trailer hitch that came with a car I picked up 6 months ago. Seller told me that he paid $150 for it. Maybe I can get that??? Make an offer. And shipping is on you.

Price is about right judging from when I sold one a couple of years ago. Looks to be the same make. I would suggest to the prospective buyer that they use a reinforcing plate on top in the trunk and use locknuts on install. I pulled mine off a junkyard car, no locknuts or reinforcement was used and it was so loose it was about to fall off. My install was tight a decade later, with the aforementioned modifications.

GLWS, it's an unusual, cool and useful feature. E28s are entirely capable of towing. :up:

So just to be clear, or maybe pedantic, but this is a hitch that fits an E28, but not the factory E28 hitch, which has way more parts and is insanely rare.

The factory hitch (to my knowledge) is designed for the European bumper/rear- not that it won't fit an US car. This is an aftermarket piece designed to be bolted to the underside of the trunk and US bumper.

I know, isn't that what I basically said?
I have a full OEM tow hitch assembly, which is why I stated this, to clarify for anyone who did not know.
I promise I wasn't trying to be a dick about it, just clarifying.
Cheers

Awkward... I did not interpret as dickiness or arrogant, I failed to read correctly.
I thought you were asking "to be clear" and did not notice the use of the word "but" and the lack of a question mark. So to be clear- my new position is that I am confirming your confirmation and am also void of contempt/ugliness.

Have a good day y'all!
