    Ive a 2009 on shape a3 3 door and needing a tow bar shortly (jet ski) now ive done a search and seen a few folk have fitted the westefella detachable towbar with a special valance on the earlier 2003 - 2008 shape model.

    Im wondering if anyone has done it to the 2009 onwards a3 and do audi do a special rear bumper valance with a cut out for the sline?

    thanks for any help / pointers

    I have the same question (though for a 2010 5 door S-line Black Edition). Any help with sorting the correct valance would be much appreciated.

    Excellent! Is that just the valence and therefore no painting is required?

    Can I ask who did the towbar fitting? The Westfalia detachable is what I am after and I contacted PF Jones this week with some questions and all the info I got back was copy and pasted straight from their website and the total cost was a lot more than I was hoping for (Tow bar £175, 13-pin dedicated electronics £199, postage £10, fitting £180, "dealer download" £70).

    the dealer download is just coding i think. if you have vcds you can do it yourself or a fellow member who lives near you could code it in for some bear tokens. ilooking at fitting a towbar to my black ed and was put off from only finding a paint section to replace the rear valance untill this tread :).

    It clips into place of the old valance on the bumper.
