it's 1.25 not metric. I had no issues... Here are pics with my Thule 912XT.
Is it really 1.25" or is it some metric equivalent?
I tried to install Thule Apex 9025 on the hitch, and it's about 1-2mm too small
Trying to figure out if it's the Thule 9025, or the trailer hitch itself.
Since I didn't buy the Thule rack from the auto dealer, thus I am a little concern that the VW dealership might blame Thule.

I have the factory hitch receiver that came with my 2012 SEL. I bought a 1 1/4 inch ball mount with 2 inch ball on Amazon, made by Master, the lock company. It was nice and snug, bit fit with no problem. I also bought the Reese 7 to 4 pin plug converter. Its shaped like a cylinder, about 2 1/2 inches long It fits perfectly too.
