    I would say, it's too close to the rear bumper, and hooking anything onto it will probably destroy your rear bumper when you turn a corner. I have a Brink detatchable tow bar on mine, and it sits alot further out than yours!

    It looks okay... looks like a tow bar looks like a clean job if that's what you were after?

    I was pleased with how it fitted I was trying to find pictures of one fitted before I did mine because they could not tell me how much bumper cut there would be thought it might be useful to post some pictures

    If thats your bm then why do want a towbar on it, i would never ever put a towbar on mine id buy a banger for that. and when you come to sell the bm then no1 would buy it as looks like its had a hard life with a tb on it.


    To do list.

    Personally, I would buy a rust heap 4x4 for all of that stuff!

    I would never attach a Tow Bar to my cars.

    - I agree with wilts

    I've got a tow bar on mine, tow's very well

    If I had an M3 on the other hand I wouldn't put a tow bar on that, my car is universal enough to take it! lol
