Go execuhitch all the way!
Your taking a risk with the other company since it does not say if it fits US spec urea tank!
Execuhitch does works with our 335d with urea injection, in my opinion it's worth the price

I have the Witter flanged detachable TB supplied and fitted from PF Jones on my 335i touring here in the UK. Included the specific wiring harness as opposed to just a simple bypass. Took the guy abt 1.5hrs to fit and test.

Been on now for 2 years and its all good

Good luck with whichever TB you go with,

Dave

Because it has fins( the diffuser) and I'm not sure it would clear the hitch.

I"ll be dammned I found it. I requested it by putting 2010 model vice my 2011 year and this is what I found, here's the link:

http://www.uhaul.com/MovingSupplies/Trailer-hitches/

P.S. I thought no one else had them but @bmw335diesel lets us know how it worked for you

As I read I came across on this info at the end:

Please note:

U-Haul is the only known company with a hitch that will fit your vehicle. However, these trailer hitches are built as ordered, so please allow 14 additional business days to complete the manufacturing process

Ok amigos I installed the hitch saturday even I tried to do it myself I encountered problems that EXECUHITCH was not aware of, the 335d has two hidden 10 mm screws on both sides(you have to pull the firewall for this) that are NOT noted on the instruction install. Also, the bumper will not POP OUT as instructed you have to pry the clip forward then pull the bumper slowly there's a least a dozen of them total, the OEM bumper will be DISCARDED since the EXECUHITCH will replace it entirely, after putting ALL this together once you have the hitch torqued and so on, you put the bumper on and realize you have to cut out some the bottom bumper to allocate space vetween the hitch and the bumper, this will formatted latewr thru EXECUHITCH which BTW sends u instruction for a 328i!! WTF Darrell
