Can anyone with a GS tow bar part# PZ408-S1553-00 measure outer distance between the two vertical plates that sit alongside the rear mufflers.

According to the literature, this tow bar fits all mk3 GS - GS300, GS350, GS430, GS450h, GS460.

I have a non OEM exhaust and would like to know if the tow bar will clear my set-up. If it doesn't then I will have to consider changing the exhaust and may select another tow bar.

Many Thanks

Bump for anyone with a mk3 GS and a factory fit tow bar.

Answer: 27-28" inches, tapering up to the boot floor.

Man-flu and the weather means I haven't measured between my 'cans' yet.

Have you bought a tow bar yet? I’ve been looking around and not found any yet.

Yes, I took the plunge and picked up an official bar and wiring harness at lunchtime.

 

The wiring looks a right long winded job, not as plug and play as I'd hoped.

Turns out it was cheaper than a fitted unit for the wife's mk5 Golf.  

I need to fit this one myself tho which I don't mind, I just need the weather to improve first.

The instructions are comprehensive so the install shouldn't be an issue.
