    Im looking at fitting a towbar to my 2002 1.8T saloon. it'll have to be a detachable one, but what has me concerned is that it says the bumper needs cutting.
    Mine has the factory pre-03 kit on.
    Does anyone have any pictures of how the towbar fits around the kit?

    I'll sell the trailer before I cut more than a few mm of the kit!!!

    I had to cut my S4 rear - but the cuts are pretty much invisible unless you lie on the ground and look up from underneath. You can just see them in this picture - and only because the end of the bumper (under the car) has a slight lip, which is now missing where the bumper needed trimmed. If you didn't have this lip, it would be invisible.

    thanks for the info and pics!
    What company did you use to supply the towbar?
    I might see if i can get some dimensions from them.
