Re: Rear bumper off pictures

jhy143 - sounds like there were issues during install. Can you tell us how you made out here? Did the issue get resolved?

Re: Rear bumper off pictures

PCheaven - was this an attempt at a Stealth Hitch (stealthhitches.com) install? Looks like it might be that or something similar.

jhy143 - did you receive your hitch? Would like to see some pics of your install this weekend.

Re: New X5

I’m a BMW fan as well. Recently traded our 2005 330Cic and got a 2018 X1 xDrive for our 2nd vehicle. Realize it’s no X5 or Velar but it’s nice and we got a fantastic deal - half the cost of our Velar before trade. The X1 is also getting a hitch install for a bike rack which helps solve my dilemma ab...

Re: What colour combo have you gone for?

Just remember with the black that it’s not more scratch/dirt prone - you simply see it easier. No comment on scratches (don’t get them??) but with the dirt I feel seeing it means I clean it more often which is actually better for the car right? I love the Corris Grey and clearly I love the black on ...

Re: 2018 R Dynamic SE - Questions

1. MITO is correct - app control only. Really wish ther was a button on my fob as well. 2. Not sure I understand this one - you want the mirrors to fold while driving? Or do you mean you want them to fold when parked when you lock the doors. Mine do this and it has to be set this way. The manual say...

Re: Audio settings

I think mine is set on DTS but only because that’s how it was set originally and I can’t hear a difference between any of the ‘surround settings’. I did have one person tell me they couldn’t hear anything in the back so I adjusted the fader a bit... but it’s probably because the surround settings ju...

Re: What to do?

It’s why I was researching. The $1440 plus install is probably not worth the cost of having it installed so I can take my bikes for better and different rides. The roof rack option is much less expensive (and no professional install needed) but has its own drawbacks. I also thought of removing the f...

Re: What to do?

Yes, I bought off the lot and didn’t need a hitch at the time - I regret that impulse decision.

Good point on the potential to damage the Velar if bikes aren’t put on roof correctly.

Next vehicle will have factory hitch installed.

What to do?

We recently bought 2 bikes and want to take them with us to expand our experience. I do not have a trailer hitch installed on the Velar but I do have roof rails. Cross bars + 2 bike carriers from Land Rover: $771 Quote from LR dealer for tow hitch receiver (parts only, not including install): $1440 ...

Love it - “A bit drug dealerish” 8-)

Seriously though, I have heard that.
