i,ve just contacted 2 tow bar fitters and both dont fit dedicated wiring kits , TOWQUIPE in nuneaton quoted 329 fitted using a universal wiring kit and FAST FITZ quoted 395 using universal kit soldered joints as they put it.
BOTH QUOTES ARE FOR DETACHABLE UNITS.

DOES THIS SOUND OK
cheers ****.

I got mine fitted by the dealer when i bought the car newWell he took it to a local fitting shop at my insistence.
Fitted a Witter detachable and VX wiring for 13pin electrics.
Good thing was that the dealer forgot to charge me for it and when i questioned this said he couldnt be bothered to do the paper work.
Good eh?

Check with your insurance company before you have your tow bar fitted as some are classing it as modification !. Mine asked what type i was having fitted when i said fixed there was an extra charge ! when i asked why they told me its down to claims from people who have injured them selves owing to it being fixed. So i have got a witter removable and no charge and the insurance company was one of the big ones on tv !!!!!!!!.

Think its down to new regulations dare i say EU legislation LOL
I have ben talking to anther chap i know and he has had the same with his car. He was told if he had failed to say he was having a tow bar fitted and had been involved in a accident his policy would have been void ! Must be in the small print so small you cant see it !!!!!

It's not in the policy they ask has the car been modified from factory built .so a tow bar is a modification.
Like side bars .performance chip

H Swinton, I was worried about buying from Italy ! butI can honestly say it was a very good buy . The Tow bar came in 3 days & was very well made & the 13 pin dedicated kit came from England . All in all a very good purchase.
