Why the bcm plug are not identified A B C?
From the drawing it look like A is the farthest from the driver seat.

Should i install a fuse between the tapped A57 and the brake controller?

If I don't come back, it's because I tapped the wrong wire.
I love you all.

When you ordered your bar from amazon.de, what kind of shipping were you seeing?

Looks like around 250E for the bar and about 150E for cheapest shipping, so just under $500USD to land at my door. Sounds like you were able to ship via a relative, to bring the costs down.

The exchange rate was better when I ordered, but I did pay them to ship it. I needed a rear diffusor that my sister shipped me. Since then, Iíve discovered one can do better through e-Acca. I updated my thread to show that.

Iíll edit this if Iím wrong, but I got the hitch and wiring shipped for like $470. I definitley wanted the factory wiring, so it wasnít really more expensive than say an Eco hitch plus ordering the wiring from Europe for me.

One thing to note about amazon in Europe is that the price includes a 19% vat that will be removed when you choose to ship it to the US in your cart. The kit I ordered is currently listed as Ä419, but is really Ä339 plus shipping.

PFJones used to remove the VAT as well, but I think theyíve updated their Dollar pricing and no longer change the price.

PF jones price of the units isn't bad (without wiring) and easy to swallow, its their $120 shipping for a tow bar and then another $120 or so if I want a towbar mounted bike rack.

All in all PF jones is just under 800 to land it at my door, which isn't that that bad when considering any US hitch bike rack plus curt/eco hitch would be maybe a little bit less. For the time being I'm not looking at any wiring.

I'd pull the trigger if they at least offered a 1-2 week shipping for say $100 for both.

As for wiring what specifically do you gain via OEM wiring over say one of the standard US jobbies? I'm all for keeping OEM but i draw the line at a certain price.

I like the that my car knows when a trailer is connected with the oem module. It adjusts the esp program and can step in to stop a trailer from swaying out of control. Iíve posted a video of it in action somewhere on this site.

The oem wiring isnít super easy to install, but itís nice that you donít have to splice into anything. You run the wires, and plug everything up where itís supposed to go.

Not as important, but I get bulb out notifications for my trailer in my mfd, and have another idiot light on my dash that lights up when I have the trailer turn signal or emergency flashers on.
