As you all know the genuine Audi tow hitch is now available from your local Audi dealer. However I have had alot of requests for publication of the O.E.M (Original Equiptment Manufacturer) hitch installed. Genuine parts often take longer to become available due to the extensive research and development that goes into the product before it is released into the market. The build quality and craftsmanship of the Q5 trailer hitch is very nice as well as the instructions for the installation are well written. After watching a Audi Certified Technician install the Q5 trailer hitch I would not recommend attempting to install it yourself. The Q5 can tow 4,400 LBS (pounds) the highest in its class by far so this is a great Audi accessory to have. Also installation time is about four hours so make sure when you drop your Q5 off at the Service Department to give them plenty of time because this is a new procedure and the professional Audi Technicians will want to make sure the installation is 100%.
