    Morning, My Fiancé finally passed her driving test a couple of weeks ago (at the grand old age of 30!), which means I can finally get rid of the horrible Mini Clubman I bought for her to learn in.

    I know that there are a lot of haters for these wheels but I personally think they really suit my car (and for those interested, yes they do fit straight on with 245/40/19 fronts and 275/35/19 rears).

    Does anyone have advice on where to find equipment and installation of a hitch for my 530xi wagon? I live in in Minneapolis, MN USA and all I can find is a class 1 hitch that would pull 2000 lbs. I've read elsewhere that this car should be able to tow 4300lbs. Thanks for any input or advice.
