If I was you, I'd go and have a face to face with somebody over there... and see if they have some type of "universal" options, but if you want to keep calling around, by all means do so, I'm sure somebody working for something close to minimum wage will be more than glad to NOT help you out over the phone...

Cool, read some reviews about them and make sure they're reputable... BTW, uhaul will def do the wiring if they cant.

This forum tends to read my mind. I was actually searching yesterday to see if anyone had a hitch setup. Post up a pic or 2 of your m with your skis behind... you'd be the first that I know about.

Im working on a wiring kit for the car,
Does anyone know if the G35 taillights have the same plugs as the M35 ?
Instead of making a custom one i might use the g35 kit but idk if they are the same :gotme

I already talk to them, they said this vehicle is not capable to tow, so no wiring kit has been made, that means another mod for this weekend, just thougth of g35 plugs i need to make sure they are not the same before stating to brake some plugs lol,, and yes those sustances are very popular down here in Miami FL specially UHAUL are getting some good prices they're always HIGH A** Fu** :rotfl

1_Fast_M do you have any more pictures of your TL trailer hitch? I have a 2005 Spec A OEM ground effect kit and would like to install a hitch but not sure how or is it will clear the rear bumper with the kit.
