Details

Please note, our product image may show the Hidden Hitch AND optional accessories (which are NOT included in the base price). Please see drop down menu to add a Drawbar (the removable part that has the actual tow ball to pull a trailer) or a Wiring Kit (only needed if a trailer is pulled).

Most of our customers purchase our hitch to attach a bike rack and do not require a Drawbar or Wiring kit.

The MniDoMore Hidden Hitch is custom engineered to fit specific MINI models and is one of the only hitches on the market that is hidden behind the bumper yet accessible for easy use when needed. The actual hitch is accessed through a small square hole in the rear black lower plastic fascia (Cooper S models as noted below) that will need to be cut during installation.  Cooper models (NON S) will require a small square hole to be cut into the bumper about 5" above the bottom of the bumper. We supply a square plug to cover the hole when the hitch is not in use.

The MniDoMore Hidden Hitch for the MINI F55 Four Door BASE and S, F56 Hatchback  BASE and S and F57 Convertible BASE and S is a heavy duty Steel assembly that mounts behind the plastic part of the MINI bumper and uses factory hardware and mounting location for a seamless and integrated look that is safe and secure and offers MINI owners the flexibility to haul, tow, attach or carry stuff they otherwise would never be able to. The hitch mounts between the large bumper support beam and the chassis.

Based on our research this will NOT fit the Base Cooper models that have the spare tire installed. Basically all base Coopers come with the spare tire so unless it is removed this hitch will NOT fit.

Accessing the hitch to insert the hitch lock pin requires reaching behind/under the plastic trim of the bumper. The first few times it will be a bit challenging to work 'blind' but it will get easier.

Once installed, the hitch can be used to attach just about any off-the-shelf trailer, bike rack or luggage trays that have a 1-1/4" size connection. The vast majority of MINI drivers will use our hitch in conjunction with an aftermarket bike rack attachment (like Thule, Yakima, etc.). A 1-1/4" hitch connection is required and the post needs to be long enough to clear the bumper.

Please note that there are 3 versions of the rear F56/7 bumper. The standard bumper is shown in our main product image. The models with the JCW buimper have 2 versions available; the standard and the JCW Pro.

Standard: https://www.outmotoring.com/images/D/MIN_JCW_rear_detail.jpg

PRO:  https://www.outmotoring.com/images/P/MIN_JCW_pro_rr_md.jpg

In both cases the hitch will come out in the same relative location to the exhaust tips which would be right in that black area on the JCW Pro and right below the part line on the standard JCW bumper where the trim panel meets the bumper part. Both will require cutting into the bumper or trim in that area IF this hitch is installed on a JCW F55/6/7 series MINI.

You guys rock , i'm super pleased at the fast shipping two items two separate times , faster than normal shipping :) A beginning to a great modding relationship Thanks again Greg

Excellent fit. I bought the matte black to try and match the rest of the trim and it looks factory installed.

Removing the OE chrome grill "nuts" was a bit of a pain, so I elected to just snap the plastic threads off rather than attempt to remove them. I wouldn't plan on keeping the OE grill as the plastic threads and stamped nuts are practically destroyed no matter how gentle you are.

The upper grill snaps in and use the same fasteners as the OE. The new stamped nuts can be a bit annoying, just seat the nut on the ball of your thumb and turn. Once the nut cuts into the plastic use a nut-driver to snug up--don't over tighten.

The lower grill just snaps in. I cleaned and plasti coted the bumper black, as you can see the bumper color behind the new grill--my car is red so it really stood out.

This grill makes the car look so much better and more up to date. I really like it.

*plasti-cote is your new best friend*

Just received my latest order for the R56 Gloss black hood scoop. Easy Install and great fit. Only issue is the gloss finish has major swirl scratches. Not sure if this was a return that got put back on the self or came from factory this way.
