I mean I know it's a pain to get the bumper off but that's crazy.

is it me?

The UK price for a factory fitted towbar is only 750. The factory towbar will allow the maximum permissible load to be towed by any X3 (F25). It is fully intragated, involves no aftermarket interferience and there is no danger of the vehicle manufacturers warranty being compromised.

Why are some of you even thinking about spending more of your 'hard earned' than it appears necessary - is the risk necessary, am I missing something here?
