    I'm in need of a A4 b5 towbar sharpish, either a swan neck or detachable one. Going camping next month so need it for the trailer!
    I know this should be in the wanted section but just wanted to give you b5 owners a nudge.

    I bough a Westfalia from 'towbarman01' on eBay, fitted last year, MUCH cheaper than anywhere else, everything you need, all you need is someone to fit it. This depends on available funds of course, but he will have the bar to you in a day, you will get 13pin electrics on that bar only, you will need to get the 13 pin to 2x7 pin adapter, it is a lead around 12" long, you will also need split charge relay, and indicator relay/beeper thing. There is a Westfalia adapter available, takes the 13 pin down to a single outlet 7pin for towing a trailer as opposed to a caravan, it is about 2" long, and simply changes the socket available, plugs into the 13 pin.

    Seriously, I would get an auto electrician to fit it, mine cost £75 to get fully fitted, bolted up and wired, worth every penny to me.
