    Discovery Sport Towbar

    I have just put a deposit on a Discovery Sport, what options have people found for a tow bar?

    The dealer fitted one is $2k which I assume might be the only option this early in it's release.

    Does anyone know any other options?

    Car gets delivered in mid-October, so I have a bit of time to do some research.

    Factory bar, factory warranty... Thats certainly worth the value for money

    I'll have to head into a stealership to have a look at how they look. I'd prefer to have it as hidden as possible.

    Depends on the vehicle.
    5 seater rather hidden
    7 seater because of the spare wheel the towbar wraps around the spare wheel & has an extra plastic cover beyond the factory bumper.

    Interesting thanks for the link sniegy! Annoying that a lot of the options are not available in Australia though.

    I wanted the 5 seat option only so hopefully I can get one relatively well hidden.

    A salesman I spoke to on the weekend couldn't tell me whether it was a 40mm or 50mm hitch. The FL2 has a 40mm hitch.

    Has anyone had any luck with aftermarket towbars?
