    Hi Guys, just purchased a new towbar for the B7 estate. I now need to source the parts for the electrics. On previous cars, I've only had to deal with 12v not the CANBUS on modern cars. As the towbar will be used to tow a small trailer infrequently I don't want to spend a fortune. Could someone direct me to a sensibly price loom to get the job done? Many thanks

    I've been looking at the same thing for an Octavia I've recently bought, Priced up the bits and 7 pin electrics and due to some recent lower back agro have decided to get it fitted by an installer.
    There seems to be lots of suppliers doing the dedicated kits but some say you need the coding to enable the ESP functionality.

    I've read VCDS will be required to activate some features. However, come across this article which explains things a little more. How to Fit a Multiplex Bypass Relay
    Would be nice to hear from someone with experience of this.
