    Sorry guys I don't mean to intrude but doing some research.

    I've read on here that the model X comes with a bosal hitch and that the towing kit comes with the bosal 2" reciever adapter? As seen here:

    [​IMG]

    Is that True?

    Does anyone have the part number for this adapter and/Or the entire towing package?

    There are a bunch of us VW owners who want this adapter however bosal has stopped selling it. And I'm wondering if it's possible to order through tesla directly? Who would I call can someone give me contact #'s I need to use for getting a hold of tesla?

    This is the part I'm looking for.

    Again my apologies for invading your space with my dieselness.... :) But I hope I posted in the right place and I hope you guys can give me leads on finding this piece!

    And again if someone wants to sell theirs contact me :)

    You are the nicest non-Tesla owner to ever pass through this forum. I hope someone answers your question and helps you out.

    The Tesla Bosal Hitch has a Tesla part number. I'll take a picture and post it here when I get back to the car later today...

    Fyi if it helps spread cross information us VW owners instead of a receiver we use a swan neck attachment.

    Same mounting system from Bosal

    Is that on the hitch itself or on the Ball mount?

    THANK YOU!

    This label is on the hitch. I can see how you may be confused, since they also have a picture of a ball mount on the label (they are just referring to the maximum ball size)

    The label is on the square receiver piece - it looks exactly like the one you posted on your original photo. It's all one L shaped piece - just like your photo.

    1027582-00-A would be the part number you are looking for based on the picture.

    I don't know why, but that looks like a Model X-rated toy to me.

    That's why I need the 2" reciever. The Ball mount I use is very phallic and that leads to you know debauchery on the highway. So I got this thing.

    It will be interesting to hear what Tesla tells you. Surely they would need to sell one to a Tesla owner, what if I lost mine? But I guess they could be reluctant to sell one to a non-owner given the response from Bosal.

    That's my guess but then maybe we can buy some with your help :) But I bet it will be priced with some crazy figure. Something like the entire tow package is 550$ but just the reciever adapter on it's own is 450$.

    Since the accessory hitch option is $200, I would hope it wouldn't be any more than that. The accessory hitch for Model X was originally going to be a free option with a 1.25" hitch receiver, but they changed it to cost $200 and it uses the same 2" hitch receiver.
