Very nice! How long did it take to install the hitch so far, and do you cut the bumper???

The install on the SVR was a bit slow since the directions were for a standard F-Pace and the Bumper cover for the SVR is a little bit different as I noted in the pictures and overview above. From backing it in the garage to pulling it out when done, it was 2 hours. Keep in mind though I had done a similar hitch install on my F-Pace First Edition about 2 years prior with the Invisihitch which is essentially the same design. That install was around 3 hours if I remember right, but on that install I did finish the wiring connections to the F-Pace harness, I have not done that yet with the SVR.

As for cutting, the only thing you have to cut is the black under body panel that goes from the bumper to the bottom of the battery box/tray at the back of the F-Pace. The cut is only about 14x 4 to allow access to the hitch and the electrical connection. And it can easily be done with a utility knife. A few passes leveraging a metal ruler scoring and then cutting into the plastic panel about half way through and then you can bend it to complete the separation.

it's not a difficult install if you are somewhat mechanically inclined. With that said you will need some large sockets to get the metal under bumper off to replace it with the Stealth Hitch cross beam. I can't remember the exact size but it was definitely larger than 21mm I believe.
