I bought my focus last feb (titanium) been looking around, and found i can get a nice 11 plate zetec for about £8500 (ford direct - but guessing likely to have 20k or so on clock.)
now i went into a couple of dealers, and they have been "ooo, ahh.... what have you been towing" etc (my obvious response was "ahh my little trailer for camping" - didnt want them to know about a van, but its twin elecs...
so, im thinking... should i remove my tow bar before i approach this dealer to trade in my focus.... will having the tow bar make a difference much?
i plan to fit one onto my new focus, so obv will save me some money on parts? (both same shape focus, not new shape focus - mk2.5)
i have bearly used my car to tow (i think i have only towed my little caravan just twice / two little holidays...)
now to the main question...
how easy is it to remove the bar myself? will i need to remove the bumper? i do have the metal support bumper still (i was wise enough to get that off the garage who fitted tow bar - he didnt look too pleased i took it, guess he had plans to sell it lol)
OR, should i just remove the "drop neck" and elec points? = how likely are they to spot it if i remove the tow ball.... but leave the bar? - i see kits online for about 80 quid, and obv would have new car with a tow bar... what would you guys do?
to remove or not to remove.... cheers
