    Ok before you all go on I know its not the done thing, but I really need a towbar for my Sportback. Ideally I want one that the tow ball can be detached. I saw it in the options list and it was £500 + from Audi so thought I would get one from "somewhere" later. Trouble is no one seems to list the Sportback only the "normal" A3.
    Anybody got one or know of any supplier?
    Oh and its to tow the trailer with my racing kart on, not a caravan I promise you!

    The factory fit is an amazing piece of kit, I had one on my 3 door. The rear bumper on the factory option is completely fidderent, its a different moulding.
    So when speccing up your car have it fitted from new. The after market one will likely leave you with a hole in the rear bumper.

    And its also not for a caravan, mountain bike rack.

    I know this might sound a little petty, but can a non-audi towbar invalidate your warranty?
