    I know this is criminal to suggest putting a tow bar on an RS4, but does anyone know where I can get a tow bar fitted to my 2007 RS4 Avant?

    Response I got form Audi. I was asking about my B5, but I think he's talking about a B7 as I don't have a diffuser

    Unfortunately there are no tow bars available for the Audi RS4. Due to the cars exhaust system and rear diffuser it is not possible for one to be attached.

    Hi jonwitts

    Did you fit a standard Audi A4 Westfalia kit? I take it there was no problems with clearances etc?

    Thanks

    Totally untrue - it IS possible to fit a tow bar to a B7 RS4, BUT it's not type approved (Audi reckon there isn't enough engine cooling on the S4 or RS4) so many places will refuse to fit one. Having said that any towbar for an A4 quattro will fit.
