IMHO, the RR tow bar kit is about the ugliest setup I've seen on a SUV. Actually the receiver unit isn't that bad, but the electrical plug in looks like some Red Neck work around.
I needed my installed right away so I went with the RR version. If I had more time, I think I might have looked around for something that might have been more hidden. As it is, I have a beautiful vehicle with an ugly thing hanging below the bumper.
That is very different from the tow bar fitted to mine - can see why you think it is ugly. They are obviously different in the US - my tow bar is removable when not in use so it is only the electrics that are visible and they are much neater than that.
Interesting. The tow bar and electrical connection are right out of the Evoque accessory book. The really ugly part is the electrical plug that is ALWAYS in sight. The bar and ball can be remove when not needed.
The only good thing about the hitch is extra protection from being rammed in the rear (especially in a parking lot.)
