Had a look and neither Bosal or Witter list a tow bar for the C6 now so your options may be limited...........

EU Type approval means the towbar must be matched to the car and subject to fatigue testing for the exact configuration including fasteners. No manufacturer is going to bother with this for a few sales per year.

Looks as though the bar will need to come from Citroen. The only place you could save money is on specifying a different electrical kit.

Ron,

If you do order it from [ Dealer 1 ] I'm heading down to Beaulieu on 7th July, I could meet up and drop it off, to save you the postage......

When you say 'singe wire kit' what exactly does that mean?
