Towbar

Hi
I'm trying to justify how practical my e93 (4 seater) is to my wife and 3 kids
So id like to be able to tow a small trailer for holidays etc. I've never towed before so I'm after advice on a tow bar, which i want to be invisible when not in use... And maybe what i should be looking for in a trailer too.

You picked the wrong car for towing. Not because the car itself can't do it, because it is expensive to do on this car. I don't know where you're from, but in Australia it costs about $1800 to fit a hide away tow bar on these. So if you're in the US you're probably looking at $900 since everything here is generally double.

Forget that. Convincing involves a beautiful day and a wind deflector - the rest'll take care of itself on the first country drive.
