    Factory Fitted Detachable Towbar Pics please

    Hi, Have ordered a Avant BE with detachable towbar and was wondering if anyone had pictures with the factory fitted towbar off. Want to see how much is still visible.
    Cheers

    You won't be able to see any of it, or even tell that there is a towbar fitted. The neck mounts up behind the bumper, and the electric socket folds up out of sight.

    Not piccys, but link to towbar fitting instruction here: http://www.westfalia-automotive.de/f...101-305305.pdf

    rhino7 has posted pics of his aftermarket install of the Westfalia here -

    A4 Avant S-Line Tow Bar Coding

    I think I'm going to fit one of these myself when the car arrives.

    Westfalia Detachable Bar and & Westafalia Dedicated Electrics. Looks to be about 300 all in.

    The S-Line (not sure about others) comes with towing prep as standard

    So it looks like a matter of making all the connections in the boot, so no running of cables throughout the car, and then some coding.

    Thanks to rhino7 the coding details are -
