    Hi chaps,

    I'm a newbie here so please treat me gently!! I have bought a new towbar for my 04 X5 and will fit this myself as I guess it's fairly straightforward.... Only problem is the wiring for the electrics. Is this fairly straightforward or do I need the services of an auto electrician bearing in mind I can just about wire a 3 pin plug
    Anyone in the Tunbridge Wells area up for a bit of assistance in exchange for a beer or two?

    Any advice from you experts greatly received.

    Where did you get the towbar from? Is it a BMW item? If so it won't be for the faint hearted fitting it
