    Due to a few changes at work and insurance being a nightmare atm for any young drivers I have to get a tow-bar fitted onto my a3 after xmas as insurance wont cover me on our 4x4. I will only be towing a small quad trailer so probably only 300/400kgs so weight and pulling power isnt an issue. I've seen a few a3s around which have a detachable tow bar fitted however you can still see two small metal plates below the bumper. Does anyone know of a more discrete tow bar design that could be fitted onto an a3?

    Yeh.. We had a detachable Towbar on our last A3 8P. The Factory fit is easy but Westphallia make them. Where are you? Brittannia Towbars in Bristol (Tony?) are brilliant.
