Has anyone fitted a 3rd party removable towbar to their A7? Looking to do it myself with one from PF Jones or Ebay rather than Audi genuine due to cost.
Is there any trim that needs to be cut? How easy is it to do the electrics? (I'm pretty good with wiring & have VCDS if any coding needed).

I fitted one to my A6 Avant and its straight forward, the wiring instructions are the same for the A6 and the A7, not sure on bumper cuts but it should tell you on their site if there is visible bumper cut depending on the towbar. I have the Westfalia detachable one with dedicated electrics and its spot on, you cant see any sign of a towbar or electrics until its fitted and electric flipped down.
For the electrics make sure you look at the images closely, I missed one wire clipped together above rear drivers wheel as I didn't spot it on the pics.
Coding is easy and doable by VCDS, I believe just one line of code is changed.
