eTrailer had DrawTite and some other one I'd never heard of. I figured DrawTite was a better bet, and it fit perfectly. (something I was concerned about)
The receiver hole on the hitch is just below the plastic lip on the body under the bumper, but I didn't need to cut anything. I wish it protruded out 2-3 inches, but the longer draw bar makes up for it. I figure DrawTite isn't about to change their design to accommodate the differences in the plastic bits like bumper covers and trim change with model years.
I'd probably cut things as needed. I keep cars a long time and when I sell the car the hitch will go with it.
