    I know its going to look rotten, however I race motorbikes and need a toebar. Does anyone do or have one suitable for the 2.5 avant quattro?

    I have a towbar on my B7. It's a westfalia detachable and you can't tell anything is fitted with out the towball on. The electrics swing up behind the bumper when not in use. Fitted it my self, including factory ecu for towing.

    Ah..... good luck fitting a towbar to that. I can't think of a single one on the market that will have a big enough "swan neck" to get down and under that bottom bumper addition.

    Thats a cut to the lower bumper install if ever I saw one.

    that by the look of it that is the votex kit(extra from audi) the standard profile of the bumper needs a little cut but it remains invisible, that is overglued to standard bumper so will need a little extra removing hope its not to bad

    I have the same as lostbok, westfalia detachable, and the bumper still required some minor modification to allow clearance for tow bar which is hardly noticeable (is if you know what you are looking for), but I think the problem you are going to have is that your lower bumper sticks out a lot further which will require quiet a bit of modification.

    Good luck have you actually contacted a tow bar fitter to get an idea of what work is involved?
