    Sorry about the delayed reply. Mine is a Bosal detatchable. Part number 026183. Ive been on Bosals website and they dont list it for the S3 any more. They do still list it for the golf mk4 4 motion, which is the same chasis and fitment. I'm sure other manufactures will still list one for the S3. I put this towbar on my R32 so I know they're interchangeable with the golfs. Any other info you want give me a shout

    I bought mine from them also, 189 from memory. The detachable bit even fits in the tool holder in the spare wheel tray!

    That looks good, and at 250, not too pricey either. How hidden is the mount when the ball isnt attached?

    You cant see anything unless you get down on your knees. Even the electric socket swivels up so you cant see it

    Yeah i get some funny looks too. I tow an 18' speed boat. Were i go with it everyone has big 4x4's and they dont understand the power and weight of the car, and the fact it is four wheel drive. I think its a brilliant tow car. Never struggled up any hills with it either. It just keeps pulling. I will admit i have pulled a caravan with it at one point. Sorry.
