    Tow Bar for the Tiguan-img_3778-jpgTow Bar for the Tiguan-img_3779-jpgTow Bar for the Tiguan-img_3780-jpgTow Bar for the Tiguan-img_3781-jpg

    Just Thought Id way in on this discussion.... I got an OEM towbar fitted prior to delivery, it took a couple of days for the techs to get the coding right, but we got there in the end. I have included closeups so you can see how well it was fitted.... yes thet did cut a small section out, but from the photos I think you'll agree it looks pretty good. The last shot is looking up from the ground. Unfortunately I cant tell you what I paid for it as I bought it as part of my lease. I didnt get an itemised quote but went with a total of $56.5K which was ordered back in September.... Ive had it since Tuesday this week. I will write up some of my initial thoughts in the "....my experience so far" thread.
    Cheers

    I've been told that the swivel tow bar was actually not legal in Australia. Not sure whether this is the VW specific one or swivel tow bars in general. Anyone got any information on this?

    Is that a price that includes the Sunroof, DAP and R-Line?

    I heard the same thing but I haven't read anything officially confirming that it's the case. My understanding is that it doesn't meet Australian Standards. Australian standards are pretty strict, a lot more conservative to Europe.

    Then it all doesn't make sense, as the new Tiguan is completely prepared for easy fitting it.

    I've asked a local tow bar manufacturer, and they said they can make me one that is completely out of sight instead of the ugly square sticking out that Volkswagen Australia and New Zealand are offering.

    I've asked Westfalia, but they are too lazy to respond, even after their CEO told me he'd make sure I'd get a response...
