These trailer receiver hitches have all been certified by Test Link Services, Inc. using SAE J684 Department of Transportation testing standards to meet a tongue weight rating of 150 lbs and a maximum tow rating of 1500 lbs. Many states require the use of a SAE J684 certified hitch for hauling and towing. These trailer receiver hitches are the only commercially available certified trailer hitch for the Mini Cooper S with a 150 lb tongue weight and 1500 lb towing weight! Get the strongest hitch here!

The average installation time for this hitch is 1.5 to 2 hours. Add another 1 to 1.5 hours for the wiring kit.

These products are drop-shipped directly from the manufacturer. Product usually ships in 1-2 weeks. Delivery times may vary depending on inventory.

* 1 1/4" class I receiver
* Powder coated black to resist rust
* 150 lb maximum tongue weight
* 1500 lb maximum towing capacity
* Installs with ordinary hand tools

The Hitch 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.

Accessing the hitch to insert the hitch lock pin requires reaching behind the plastic part of the bumper and above the exhaust tips. Confirm the exhaust tips have cooled off first. The first few times it will be a bit challenging to work 'blind' but it will get easier. Accessing the hitch pin will only be required if a accessory or drawbar is added or removed.

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.

Is there a bike rack compatible for a 2012 convertible New MINI Cooper?

My suggestion with the Convertible MINIs is to install hitch like this one: G2NMX6126 and run any of the bike racks we sell on THIS PAGE.

I bought a Mini Cooper convertible 2017 a year ago and then bought this bike rack, unfortunately, my mini didn’t come with the hitch package. So I’m reaching out wondering if you have anything to convert my hitch into one that can fit this bike rack? If so can I have your assistance on what I need to get? If not can I have your assistance on an alternative option for a bike rack for my mini? I appreciate your help!!
The only solution we can offer for the convertible is the hitch with the hitch-mounted bike racks.

What your F57 convertible needs is the S3ARA Luggage Prep option. This is the option that adds the threaded port on the left side.

Here is the hardware to add the S3ARA option to your F57 convertible.

Once you install this bumper hardware, you should be able to use the bike rack.
We don't have installation instructions available for the luggage prep bumper, but here is a basic overview:
  1. remove rear wheel arches
  2. remove rear tail / brake lights
  3. remove rear bumper cover
Some do it themselves, others take it to their local body shops or the dealer.
A local body shop that specializes in European cars or MINIs and BMWs should be able to install very easily.
