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).

Image shown has a bike rack installed for reference only and is not included.

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 MniDoMore Hidden Hitch for the PRE 2011 MINI R56 Hatchback 'S' and R57 Convertible 'S' models ONLY.

If you have the JCW body kit (specifically the JCW REAR BUMPER) you will need the #1003 hitch receiver. The install of the 1003 along with the JCW rear bumper requires cutting a small square hole in the painted part of the bumper about 3" from the exhaust tips.

The hitch is a custom designed 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.

This hitch is accessed through a small square hole in the rear lower black grill above the exhaust tips. We supply a black square plug that can be used to cover the hole when the hitch is not in use.

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.

My hitch for my R53 came in today and 3 hours later it is installed and the car is all back together. The fit and finish are excellent and I couldn't be happier with the product. The only problem I had is that the instructions mention zip ties and replacement trim mount clips but the little Baggie included in my box was empty. Someone forgot to pop the parts into the bag before tossing the bag into the box. Didn't really effect me because I didn't break any trim tabs and I have PLENTY of zip ties.

Thanks for a great and unique product that makes the ownership of our quirky little MINIs even better.

I was a little disappointed after speaking with Aaron today about my order. I placed an order for two items and was sent an email with a tracking number. Got one of the items today as tracking number stated. There was a note in the package that the other item was being shipped from another warehouse. There was no mention of this when I received the email with the tracking number. Then when I contacted Outmotoring about this. Aaron told me he would try and get me a tracking number for the other item.Then could not verify when the item would ship. Would have been nice to know that it would be shipping from some where else in the original email.

I am a new Mini Cooper convertible owner. The car I bought had a busted rear third brake light. The lights worked just fine, but the red plastic cover was missing. I expected it to be very expensive, however, I went on an online search and found OutMotoring.com. I was pleasantly surprised to find out they had what I needed, and it was not expensive at all - far less than I expected! Other sites were charging more than twice as much! ordered it on the 12th, had it by the 15th (and I didn't pay expedited shipping).

I also need to get some replacements for the rear belt line trim...unfortunately those are a bit pricier, but still competitive with other sites.

I will definitely be ordering parts from here in the future!
