I've ordered a US ix50. Dealer says no roof rack or trailer hitch options available. Expect Feb 23 delivery

Any ideas if that will change or aftermarket options?

Thanks
Interesting. I was offered one here in Australia for my 50 and the factory hitch is so neat. There is a release button next to the rear seat buttons in the cargo compartment and it drops down when you want it. From memory too it was cheap - maybe $600 or so?

StealthHitch is working on a 2" receiver hitch for the US Get a FREE Hitch for your Vehicle! ... Contact Us and let them know you're keen like I did. They are/were eager to get an iX in Atlanta GA to measure it up so if you can help - let them know. I understand this will be fine for a bicycle rack but my dealer in CA said cutting into the electrical for trailer lights or a towing load would be detected and void the warranty.

Stealth Hitches would like to borrow an iX from someone in the Atlanta area so they can size a hitch for it. The volunteer gets a free hitch. Great product. I have it one my X5.

I plan on getting this. However, for awareness for others, they were unsuccessful in electronic integration and/or working out the communication protocol BMW is using. As such, there's no way to let the car know that the hitch you have back there is NOT an object you're about to run into. So expect alarms when you try and go in reverse.

But that's the best/only option right now for a hitch for folks to carry a bike rack. Ridiculous on BMWs part...but there you have it.
