Afternoon Guys

After a brief search and look through the site I thought this would be the best place to post this.

I am about to fit a towbar to my 2009 Mondeo estate and have opted by the vehicle specific electric kit instead of tapping into the wires. The kit isnt expensive, around 50 I think from Sandycliffe, however, apaprently the car needs programming to make it work, which will cost me circ 70 + vat!!

Does anyone know of any cheaper means of getting this done? I am assuming that their is some Ford specific software required to access and edit the settings on the ECU.
