Need to fit the right tow-bar onto my June 04 Sorento XS but am fussy about how it also looks as bars like the Witter are just an eyesore with all that iron sticking out the back & underneath !
The Kia ones do look better but I wondered if anyone else had my concerns about having the right bar both from a mechanical strength/security viewpoint as well as neding to look an integral part of the vehicle too !
Does anyone know of a site where you can go that visually shows each tow-bar fitted so you can also make this choice ?

I had a dealer fitted bar fitted (for free :D ) to my Sedona when I spec'd the car new. It is very neat and tidy with only the ball showing and none of that untidy ironwork you mention.

I have seen a simular installation on a friends Sorento, looks very neat and tidy.

You can haggle at the dealers mine originally quoted me over £400 but I know they sub the work ;) out and it costs the dealer only £190. plus 10% commission

Not sure where your are based but;
The work is done by a local mobile fitter I dont have his details but this can be obtained from Click Here who are based in the midlands. I am sure you could discuss the ironwork issue, with them or their towbar fitter they are very freindly.

Note I have no financial or personel gain from this information it is a friendly recommendation.

Ps I may be able to get some pictures & details this coming weekend, of my friends Sorento setup if you are interested.

I have just had a Brink removable towbar fitted to my spanking new Sep 04 Sorento XE - it is not at all obtrusive, even the 13 pin electrics fold away under the bumber. Only a very slight bumber cut (ouch!!) but the specialists who fitted it did and excellent job. Only use a reconised Brink dealer to fit. B)
