Hi everyone,

I'm about a month away from rolling over from red to green P plates and am looking at getting a tow bar for my SV6 sedan as I will be allowed to tow then (I'm in Victoria).

How easy is the installation of a tow bar? Bumper off, re-bar off, bolt it on, plug in trailer lights cable and then put everything back together? Or is it a bit more involved?


Also, quick question for those of you in Victoria; I have re-styled white-on-black plates on my car, and kept the old blue-on-white plates. S on my parents' 6x4 trailer, can I put an old blue-on-white plate on the trailer legally, or is that considered illegal because I didn't get a specific 'exempt trailer' plate?


Thanks again!

Plug and play. Just bolt it all on. There are harnesses for this. The plugs are all there.

If you do some searching, the installation instructions are somewhere on the forum.

Very simple to install and if you get the correct 1 plugs into the rh tail light which then the light itself will plug in to and there should also be a single plug for the lh indicator to plug in on the same side also
