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?
914werke
I believe so. Also available from Draw Tite, Reese & others.

Example:

You show a picture of the bar but a picture of it actually mounted on a 914 might really help! Interested.

rolleyes.gif They typically do. This is into my 2nd run of these.
I never expected this to be a huge sell'er. The rub is as the cars become more valuable
more folks are trailering thier 914's sunglasses.gif

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?

You got it. I logged a LOT of miles with various 914's flat towing.
Pulling with everything from a Ranger to an RV. Current tow rig is a 05 F150 smile.gif
No Problems.

What are the three bolts on each side for? And how much shipped to 93401?
914werke
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.

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.

Darn it...that thing is awesome. Time to start looking for an aftermarket front valance!

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. icon8.gif The most fun was the double takes when we passed folks on the interstate...and then they saw the Passat was towing a 914!!! driving.gif

Can a 914 tow another 914 with this hitch? Anyone's estimate of how much weight a 914 can tow?

@914werke
914werke
Ive never tried as I honestly never owned a 914 that was equipped with a hitch setup but my guess is it could with a 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

The metal on a 914 is so thin. It's one thing to pull it by it's suspension points. I would never try to pull a 914 with a 914. Even if you could get it moving, you would be doubling what the brakes need to handle.
