$149. + ship
I am interested in getting one of these, but what type of tow bar do you use for the rest of it? I had a Blue Ox tow bar we used for towing our truck behind a RV- would it be some thing like that?
I believe so. Also available from Draw Tite, Reese & others.
Time to bump this.
holiday gift giving ~?
You show a picture of the bar but a picture of it actually mounted on a 914 might really help! Interested.
Ya its been on my list ... will work on that directly.
I'm shocked it's still available. I assumed Featured Items sold fast!
WCR is fast approaching
If you are planing on towing ....here's a option!
How well does it tow using this method? Do you leave the car in neutral and leave the steering wheel unlocked so it finds its center?
What are the three bolts on each side for? And how much shipped to 93401?
Those are the included mounting hardware.
Due to the added dimension of the bracket the bolts need to be longer + the front mount.
There are mounts welded to the bracket so the bolts & spacer don't get lost when not in use.
counting down to WCR?
Ready to ship!
Will it clear a standard front valance? If you can send/post a pic of one on a car with the standard valance you will have yourself a quick sale!
If you are asking if you can tow with the OE valance in place, Sorry you can not.
Because the orig. standard valance curves back under the car it actually covers the the suspension pickup points where he bracket mounts.
I had been playing with a way to more easily remove & reinstall any valance.
You have to unscrew 6 fasteners (4 in the Frunk 2 in the wheel wheels) the screws in the front trunk are easy and Dzus fasteners work perfectly there , but the two 8mm bolts that retain the far ends of the valance are tougher as there is very little room there for a quick release mechanism. I currently have a pair of cleco's in those spots which work but dont have the positive locking or small /low profile Im after.
did this ever sell?
Happy Independence day everyone!

to the top!
Just received the tow bracket and it looks great!
Here's a photo of his flat tow bracket in action. I used it to tow my Turbo'd 914 from Phoenix back to TN with my Passat TDI years ago.
Great (fast) trip, other than hitting a huge skunk on the way home, LOL. The most fun was the double takes when we passed folks on the interstate...and then they saw the Passat was towing a 914!!!
Can a 914 tow another 914 with this hitch? Anyone's estimate of how much weight a 914 can tow?
Ive never tried as I honestly never owned a 914 that was equipped with a hitch setup but my guess is it could with little effort.
The wimpiest rig Ive flat towed a 914 behind is a 2.0l Ranger 5 speed - gutless!
but handled it with little drama
