Hi, congrats on your purchase and great to hear that your new car is of liking. Regarding the hitch, I think the factory/dealer installed one is 1) expensive (I was quoted $600-800) and 2) they have to make a little cutout on the bottom of the rear bumper. I would recommend aftermarket ones, you can anywhere from $150-$300 depending on your towing needs, a $200-250 one should be sufficient for bike racks and similar. If you find a dealer who is used to install hitches on a regular basis and are familiar with a particular brand of hitches, they can wrap it up in about an hour, ie approx $90 labor. Torklifts Stealth Hitch is very "hidden" and can be installed using the existing holes after the rear bumper has been removed, unlike most others where two extra holes need to drilled to accommodate the install. Best of luck! Cheers, plex.Report it
