    Angry S4 not a towing car.....

    Or at least that is what I was told by a well known towbar dealer?

    Anyone know why? seems like an ideal tow car to me!!

    I can't see why the rear end is different to any other A4 quattro so I may get an S-line quattro towbar and see if it fits - unless anyone can tell me a good reason not to?

    Thanks

    I have seen S4s with towbars fitted.

    The official position by Audi is that there is insufficient engine bay cooling on the S4 for use as a tow car.
