    OEM Trailer Hitch

    I am looking to install a trailer hitch on my 2001 740iL.

    Couple of questions:
    - Is there a BMW hitch available in the US? I have seen references to one saying it uses holes available in the frame (or something like that). Anybody have a part number, availability and other information regarding such a hitch?

    - If not an OEM, is there another option which does not require drilling holes. I would like to not drill holes if I there is an option.

    - If an OEM hitch exists in the US, where is the best place I can order. Does anybody have one for sale?

    Also, I would appreciate if you could copy me on a reply as I am unable to get to this forum on a regular basis. My personal email is rabidm3 at hotmail dot com.

    Thanks,

    Vijay
