What’s the Towing Capacity of The BMW 4 Series?
The BMW 4 Series Coupe has an approximate towing capacity of 1600KG to 1800KG. This capacity will allow you to tow a cycle carrier, trailer, and a medium caravan. To find out an accurate towing capacity for your own BMW 4 Series, please refer to the VIN plate located on your vehicle.
Which Towbar is best for my BMW 4 Series?
When fitting a towbar to the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe, you can choose between 3 types: a fixed flange towbar, a fixed swan neck towbar, and a detachable swan neck towbar.
The fixed flange towbar is a permanent towbar that cannot be removed unless removing it entirely from the vehicle. The fixed flange towbar has a plate at the rear of the bar that allows towing accessories to be bolted on; this includes bumper protector plates and bolt-on cycle carriers. The fixed flange towbar is the only Towbar that is compatible with bolt-on style cycle carriers. The fixed flange towbar can also be used to tow clamp-on style cycle carriers, trailers and caravans. Although if you are towing using an ALKO stabiliser, an ALKO towball must be fitted beforehand.
The fixed swan neck towbar is another permanent towbar; this Towbar cannot be removed at the end of towing. The fixed swan neck is a lot thinner in design than the fixed flange towbar; it is less likely to interfere with parking sensors when the vehicle is in reverse. The fixed swan neck towbar is compatible with all clamp-on style towbars, trailers and caravans. The fixed swan neck towbar is compatible with ALKO stabilisers, so there is no need to purchase an ALKO towball.
The detachable swan neck towbar is the only Towbar where the neck can be detached using a twist and push method. Once the towbar neck has been removed, the electric socket will flip up underneath the bumper, leaving the Towbar almost invisible. This style of Towbar is most popular with customers whose vehicles have reverse parking sensors, as once the towbar neck has been removed, the sensors can work as intended. The detachable swan neck towbar is compatible with all trailers, clamp-on style cycle carriers and caravans. Like the fixed swan neck towbar, no ALKO ball is required to tow an ALKO stabiliser.
Will it need a bumper cut?
During the towbar installation, the engineer will carefully remove the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe Bumper; this will be refitted once the installation has been completed. No modifications will be made to the vehicle's bumper when fitting any of the towbars that we supply, although please be aware that this applies to vehicles with the standard bumper. If your BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe has been modified, then this may mean the towbar engineer will have to modify the bumper to fit the Towbar.
