Has anyone of you guys ordered a removeable tow bar with your R-Design spec? I was considering getting one of those for use with Thule bike carrier but decided to wait a little as it can be fitted at a later date.
Dealer told me that there will have to be a cut-out in the lower part of the bumper which is covered by a plastic plate when the tow bar is detached.
I would be greatfull for some photos of what it looks like as I could not find any.
Thanks.

I have the detachable tow-bar (yet to be used...) on my V40 - not an R-Design, just a regular.

This is what the cover looks like:


I can see that the R-design have a different diffuser, so it will look different, but it's probably the same way it works.

There's a picture of the towbar and the cover in the Volvo V40 accessories "catalogue". http://tinyurl.com/cxgvbj2

I have the Volvo Detachable tow bar on my D3SE lux. Easy to fit and remove, cover as in pic above. Only slight issue is that cover does seem to collect a little water.

Did you ever get it fitted at a later date and was it an easy job ?

I must say the BMW 3 series detachable towbar is very nice, completely behind the bumper, now cover nothing, looks like you have nothing when it is off
