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 2002-2006 R50 Hatchback and 2004-2008 R52 Convertible models (NON S!). 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 hole where the black grill/rear light clips into place above the exhaust tips.

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.

You guys Rock I placed my order on Monday and had it by Wednesday U cant beat that! Great service !!!
Mike Babinetz

These RS Door Pulls are a great addition to my R53. Having a bit of a learning curve because it's a new way to open the door. The straps seem a bit long as well but I'm sure it's just because I'm used to the OEM Door handle. I'd recommend this to anyone who wants to add a little race inspired style to a sporty little car.

In this "internet age" we find ourselves searching for the best price we can find. All the while not thinking about the "value" of customer service. Is an extra dollar or two in your pocket worth bad service? The answer is no!

While Out Motoring offers competitive pricing, the one thing no other on-line vendor can provide is the amazing and excellent customer service provided by the Out Motoring Team.

Their responsiveness, professionalism, knowledge and ability to accommodate a customers needs are world class and second to none!

Good service DOES have "value" and it's worth paying for! So my advice is before you waste time trying to find a better price elsewhere think about what it might cost you in the long run should you encounter a problem.

It's better to do business with a company like Out Motoring which is professional, customer focused AND offers competitive pricing.

Out Motoring has set the benchmark for all other on-line retailers who have forgotten the meaning of customer service.

Advantages: Convenience, easy to navigate parts finder, superior customer service.

Disadvantages: I wish there was a bigger variety of OEM accessories (but not a deterrent for doing business).
