More about the BMW 3 Series
The BMW 3 Series uses its X-Drive technology to provide the most enjoyable driving experience for those who love to adventure. The Estate car adapts its all-wheel-drive system to allow for a perfect drive in the most challenging road conditions. It uses its flexibility to distribute its torque to the front and rear axles where necessary.
It also recognises and immediately responds to over and understeer, making driving the BMW 3 Series a pleasure rather than a chore.
With all the clever technology included in the BMW 3 Series combined with the luxurious design, there’s no wonder they are still such popular cars amongst their competitors, even after nine years on the market.
What’s the Towing Capacity of the BMW 3 Series?
The BMW 3 Series Touring Estate has a towing weight of approximately 1700KG; however, due to the vast number of models available in the 3 Series, we would advise referring to your VIN plate for an accurate capacity.
Which Towbar is best for my BMW 3 Series?
We offer the full range of Towbars for the BMW 3 Series F31, with each Towbar offering its advantages.
As with all vehicles, we always advise opting for the detachable Towbar if your car is fitted with parking sensors. Due to where the parking sensors are fitted, the Towbar can sometimes interfere with your parking sensors, causing a constant beeping when in reverse. With a detachable swan neck towbar, the neck can be removed once towing has been completed, meaning the parking sensors can work as intended.
The fixed swan neck towbar is the perfect choice for those who don’t see it fit to remove the towbar neck when towing has finished. The slimmer style neck makes the Towbar less likely to interfere with parking sensors when reversing; however, please be mindful that we cannot guarantee this.
The fixed flange towbar is an excellent option if you want to fit towbar accessories onto your Towbar. The bolt-on plate on the Towbar allows for accessories to be attached to the Towbar, leaving the tow ball free for your towing purposes. Please be aware that parking sensors can be affected when using reverse due to the Towbar’s chunkier design.
Will my 3 Series need a bumper cut?
There are no modifications needed on the standard bumpers to fit the Towbar to BMW 3 Series. However, different bumper models may require a bumper cut during the towbar fitment. If you are unsure if your vehicles bumper is standard, please feel free to contact our sales team for further advice.
