Yes. The receiver sits ~1/2" above the bottom of the bumper cover, requiring a little finessing to get anything into it and resulting in some upward pressure on the bumper cover. I'm going to be adding 1/4" aluminum plate spacers to reduce the upward pressure and make installing the hitch rack easier (I don't want to use 1/2" spacers because I think it would put the exhaust down a little obviously low, so I'm compromising).

Adding the Curt 11431 was the first thing I did to mine. It's only seen if you know it's there, the average person will never notice it.
There is something wonderful about this car hiding a hitch. It is just like how most would under estimate the speed of an ST. They will also underestimate its' practical usages.

These machines are our little known secret :cool2:
