The installation was as quick and easy as was advertised. It's great being able to be able to take it off in 10 minutes or less and install it again when needed. I purchased it mainly to carry a bike rack and this is perfect. Wonderful design and would recommend it to any mini owner without any hesitation. Review by Rossco (Posted on 7/25/2017)

It needed some persuasion (hammer) to install onto the mounting posts since it can be difficult to line up both sides straight, but not a big deal. Quick and easy to install, will likely never remove it from the car as it looks great.
Highly recommend.

M7 Speed Review

The one review you want to take time to read.

I ordered this for my 2016 Countryman and am totally glad I did and here is why.

First, let me help make the decision easy based on my research. You have three different types of utility hitches you can install on your Countryman, two of which require you to cut into your bumper and one does not. The one you are looking at that M7 Speed sells does NOT require you to cut your bumper in any way. In fact, it only took about 5 minutes to install; I’m not kidding, it was that easy and quick.

THE OTHER TWO UTILITY HITCHES AND WHY THEY ARE NOT A GOOD IDEA

You may be thinking that you can save a few bucks purchasing the following two utility hitches, but keep in mind the other two utility hitches require you to completely remove your bumper cover, and then unbolt your bumper and then place the utility hitch on, and then reinstall everything. Keep in mind that you vehicle requires some special plastic connectors that may need to be replaced if you do not take special care in the removal. They are not expensive, but it’s just a hassle.

FURTHERMORE, THE OTHER TWO HITCHES…..

THE FIRST UTILITY HITCH will require you to cut you bumper behind the license plate, which will also require you to hang the license with only two bolts using the bottom two holes of your license plate holder. Once you take the time to look this up, you will understand what I am explaining.

THE SECOND UTILITY HITCH will come out from underneath the bumper cover. If you have not looked closely at the underside of your bumper cover you will learn that it is oddly wide, at least on my 2016 its about 14” wide for some unknown reason. Anyway, you will have to cut a hole in the bottom of your bumper cover for this utility hitch to work.

Also, if you not conformable working on your car, you will pay a hefty premium for these utility hitch installs, and the cost of the cheaper utility hitch and professional installation will likely cost more and definitely require you to cut your bumper. Me, I did not want to cut into my new bumper, plus the M7 Utility hitch looks great. I know this because I see Mini people pointing at it and asking me about it.

TOOLS
1. Torque Wrench
a. A torque Wrench is a good tool to have in any garage.
b. You do not need to spend top dollar on a torque wrench, but you definitely need to be responsible and properly tighten the “mounting adapter” bolts to specification. If you leave the utility hitch on all the time, then you want to periodically test the torque to ensure proper tightness.

2. Dead Blow Hammer (3 pounds)
a. This will help you remove the utility hitch if it is stuck or difficult on removal.
b. A dead blow hammer is a plastic hammer that is filled with sand on the inside. Basically, when you hit something with it, all the force of hammer weight is completely delivered to the object with no rebound force. However, because it is plastic, it will not mark the metal. NOTE: this is NOT a mallet hammer that has a rubber surface.
c. You can buy a 3LB dead blow hammer at Harbor Fright tools for about $8.00.


THINGS I LEARNED THE HARD WAY

Mounting Adapter Bolts:
The “mounting adapter bolts” is what bolts directly to the car, and then the utility hitch slides onto and then is secured using the “connection bolts.”

Before installing the mounting adapter bolts make sure you remove the stickers that tell you what the torque specification is. The reason you do this is because when you mount the utility hitch onto the mounting adapter bolts, the stickers may roll up and make removal of the utility hitch extremely difficult. This is why I said, have a 3LB Dead Blow Hammer on hand.

Utility Hitch:
Coat the inside utility hitch that mounts onto the mounting adapter bolts with “anti-seize lubricant,” available at any auto part store for a couple bucks. This will make the removal of the utility hitch a little easier.

The actual hitch is very roomy, Meaning that the only point where the utility hitch touches my car is the mounting points. This thing is totally solid.

Customer Service
This company is great! I called a few times with some basic questions before purchasing. They were very polite and answered my questions.

Shipping was speedy.

Conclusion.
I definitely recommend this product. I will also be placing this review on Amazon with a couple pictures of my car with the utility hitch installed :-)

Agree with Will above. Quick installation,t ight fit, need a rubber hammer to seat it. Also need caps for the silver bolts showing on the Paceman JCW model. Sure beats anything else on the market where you need to take the bumper off and cut holes and stays a permanent installation. Review by Jim (Posted on 4/29/2017)
Awesome look and Functionality with one small issue
Value
Arrived and put on my 2014 Paceman. The installation steps are straightforward and once the hitch is on it looks great. I don't even want to remove it and just leave it there. There was one small problem during installation. It's a very tight fit onto the hitch bolts so there needed to be a little mallet action on the right side to get it to seat fully. This obviously means it is a little harder to remove when taking the hitch off. I am hoping as this settles and is used for a while that this gets a little easier to take off. It would also be a good idea to provide some hole covers or at least the same color bolts so steel bolts aren't shown.

All in all I love the product so far and am glad I purchased it.

Great Quality Hitch Receiver

Versatile hitch receiver for the mini cooper countryman. The receiver is very sturdy and well made. This is a better choice than notching the bumper to install a different brand receiver. I am using the receiver to mount a 1 UP USA bike rack and it works perfectly. Review by Steve (Posted on 2/9/2017)

We are happy with our new hitch assembly. It was very easy to install and accepts the cage we wanted to haul behind our MINI very well. Thanks for a well-made product.
