    Hi all, first time posting and brand new Model X owner. What an amazing piece of technology...
    Anyway, I'm sorry if this has been asked, I've searched but found no answer.
    When we picked up the MX, I asked about purchasing a 2” hitch receiver. I do not need the "tow package" as I'm not planning to "tow" anything other than my own bike rack. The technician told me that I could not purchase the 2” hitch receiver by itself and that I had to buy the tow package ( Tesla — Tow Package ) for $1250 as the receiver itself (that used to cost $750) is no longer available.
    Does anybody have any experience with this? Are there any other options/suggestions? I just want to be able to mount my bike rack!
    Thanks!
    Mario.

    Did you order the accessory hitch (or was it available) when you were placing your order?

    Congratulations and welcome. I was lucky to get the 2" reciever. It was discontinued later. There is a bike rack available on the website site, says requires precongrifured towing package or accessory hitch.
    Tesla — Model X Hitch Rack.
    Remember having seen after market bike rack.

    They told me that it could be installed at the SC at a later date, but now it seems it was a miscommunication. They thought I wanted a tow "package".

    I was told it could be installed later at the SC if I chose to buy it, but apparently there was some miscommunication and they thought I wanted the tow "package" when all I wanted/needed was the receiver :-(

    Thanks! Unfortunately the receiver by itself seems to be discontinued so I'm out of luck. My bike rack is very similar to Tesla's (2" mount). Basically, I would really like to avoid spending a month's payment just to be able to mount my rack... Half a months payment would probably be ok though :)
