    Fitting Towbar To S3 - Have Towbar Need Info

    Have got one of these:



    Before i go pulling my bumper off, am i going to find holes under the car to bolt it to or am i going to have to drill my own? Had a quick look under the car earlier but cannot see anything other than the exhaust box and exhaust heatshield, do they have to be removed? Does the towbar replace the crash bar?

    Anyone have any pics?

    The car is a 2003 S3.

    Holes should be there as it's a standard A3 chassis member you bolt it to.

    Cheers,

    Yeah, I fitted one to my std a3 (non quatty). The entire unit replaces the crash bar beam which fits behind your bumper, and the side bars slot down your rear subframe either side, and then there are two bolts which come in from the side and bolt through the nut welded on to the unit. You may have to take off your wheels to gain access to the bolt holes as they are quite inaccessible in the wheel well.

    Cheers,

    Cheers for the info, fitted like a glove with no bumper cutting at all and is completely hidden from view when not in use. Can highly recommend the Westfalia for the S3.

    I'd stick with the right fitment if i were you. Surely if the Golf kit fitted then it would be listed along side the S3.
