    2011 Tiguan Bike Rack and towbar

    Hi all
    So ive decided to take the plunge and get a bike rack for my 2011 tiguan. Im wanting to go for a towbar style for ease of access and to accommodate 4 bikes. This will also involve getting a tow bar installed as i dont have one.

    So i would be interested from anyone who has a similar setup. The dealer has quoted over $2k for a towbar, so im looking at getting a non-dealer fitted one, these come in around $1k. Any recommondations? for brand and fitting (in Perth)?

    In terms of the actual bike rack, im looking at a thule Thule Australia Products Bike Carriers Thule 9708 HangOn 4 Bike

    Anyone had experience with these? Or other brand recommondations?

    Thanks in advance.

    Make sure your non genuine towbar has the smarts to disable your reverse sensors as you don't want constant warnings you have a bike rack on the back when you're in reverse.
