FPV Towbars

FPV have started supplying FPV Towbars. Mine gets fitted this afternoon. I will let you know after I get it.

Anyone else still waiting and not heard anything? I waited over 3 months!!

Re: FPV Towbars

Delay on fitting it.

The dealer rang me and showed me another car installed that morning. Evidently, they are having some minor difficulties in cutting out the rear bumper bar cleanly.

It appears that FPV did not fully think out the towbar during the design of the car.

I have decided to temporarily delay the installation at this stage.

What I want to know is if I decide to remove the towbar later, how to I fix the ugly hand cut hole in the rear bumper bar?

eightoftwelve, it looks like you get a new bumper, or never change your mind. Do they put the bar through the black section or through the painted section below it?
