Anyone using a small tire trailer? Who sells a quick-release hitch for an E46 M3?

Unfortunately I think the short answer is "no one".

There have been a couple of one-offs, and a French guy who devised a system that cut through the rear bumper, and a lady who son built a custom rig.

The real challenge is that the exhaust is in the way of anything worth connecting to, and then the diff is right behind that.

If you find otherwise please let us know.

BTW, do you line them up or stack them with the seat back down? It would seen like a hazard if they were stacked.
I was thinking the same thing, so when i stacked my rims on the folded down rear seat I pulled the rear seatbealts throught the tire tote handles and attached them to each other in the middle with a small toe strap type device. that way if i was in a car accident, heaven forbid, they wouldn't bounce around inside the car and knock my head off!

I'm loving those roof racks but I think I would be kinda be worried about theft (when parked at a hotel overnight before the track event).

I'm not sure. I think that would be the STi Hatch. It's even SUV shaped. :-P
