    Does anyone here have the Westfalia detachable towbar fitted to their A6 Avant (mines a 2000W)? If so could they post the clearance between the towball and rear bumper? I'm wanting to fit a 4 bike carrier, have a towbar fitted but missing towball, and want to know whether the Westfalia kit gives enough clearance for Thule platform models.

    Thanks in advance

    Thanks djl

    That fits with what the manual says for the minimum clearance between bumper and towball, assuming that my car has a factory fitted towbar (the max nose-weight stickers are in German so hope so). Btw a replacement towball doesn't come cheap at @ £150-£160 (which is why I wanted to ask before ordering), especially when the full kit is £210-£220. But there are 3.5 hours labour on top of that for fitting.......don't trust my own skills either......if it fell off could be a pretty lethal weapon........m'lud.
