Default 2012+ Impreza Sport - Trailer Hitch

Has anyone had success installing a trailer hitch on the 2012+ Impreza? I'd like to install a hitch for a bike rack, but I don't want to dramatically modify the car (i.e. cut up the rear bumper).

This looks like the best bet, but I'd like to hear of any success stories before dropping $250 on a hitch (with more for the rack after that): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wR9J4hQGde8

Thanks.

The amount of modification you'd need to do to your car to make that hitch work is pretty minimal. There's nothing you can really screw up or that can be seen from the exterior. Plus having it hidden completely like that with no ground clearance change is great. It can be a little tricky to get the hitch pin in sometimes.

Check e-trailer or Amazon for hitches, too. You'll find some more conventional type hitches, probably around $150 that are easy to install. Your steep driveway entry capability takes a hit though.
