    I live in Perth, Western Australia and purchased my 2" hitch/receiver from the States, via a Tesla service centre, and had family pick it up and post it out for another US$75. From memory, US$112 sounds familiar.

    that's promising but, what information did you need to give them for them to permit you to buy it? like vin number, registration, etc
    and do you know if they verified any of it to you personally? or was it just information to check a box somewhere on their forms

    It was pre delivery but they required my VIN and provided an invoice. They realised I was in Australia because of my email.

    I suggested if that wasn't going to work I could provide a NA vehicle VIN and I was buying it as a gift ;)

    I also purchased the US $19 carry case.

    As an answer to the original. Accessory can be upgraded to a full tow package.

    Can someone provide a summary of this lengthy thread and confirm what we have and don't have on our Model X to either allow us or prevent us from using the accessory hitch for towing or using a bike rack/Ski rack?

    Much appreciated.
    Thanks

    If you have a factory hitch then you have a factory hitch. There’s no difference between accessory or tow in terms of hardware.

    What you won’t have is the software; which costs roughly $750 to purchase and activate. This will give you towing software that will include sway control, auto leveling, etc that will prevent damage when towing.

    Hello there,

    It tried and no solution by now.
