Hello Everyone, I currently own a 2010 Porsche Cayenne Base model that has no trailer hitch and I was wondering is the Hitch for the 2007-2010 Audi Q7 or VW Touareg interchangeable with the Cayenne's? Its hard to find a used OEM Cayenne Hitch but I can find plenty of VW and Audi ones and at a better price. Any input would help. Thanks in advance. Sincerely, Paul
Hi - I just upgraded to a '06 CTS last week I tried to swap the OEM trailer hitch from my '05 Cayenne V6. I figured that the 8 thread holes in the chassis are incompatible in diameter - The V6 features M14x1.5 and the CTS M12x1.5. I tried to find some hints on possible solutions here, but unfortunately mostly aftermarket hitches are being discussed, where compatibility issues seen not to exist.... :( I could imagine that the OEM hitch will need re-threading of the frame to meet the towing capacity specification.... Alternatively, I could imagine to forget about the max towing capacity for a moment (the max load is a motorcycle I am pulling to the race track), and simply to take long enough M12x1.5 bolts with sufficient Strength (higher then 8.8 stock). Any advice is highly apprechiated THX
