    The Vectra VXR's detachable towbar instructions, do highlight that a cut is required, but you don't need to do it.

    I fitted one to a friends VXR estate a good while ago and although it suggested you do it, we didn't bother.

    All Zafira B's need a bumper cut.

    Ive got a 07 vec est sri with the vxr kit on.I bought the towbar from Vauxhall.It is a westfalia fixed type.Dead easy to fit and no cutting or modification whatsoever needed.Also bought the electrics from Vauxhall.Just plug in and finished.Not expensive either.I think it was about £140-160 all in.

    Hi Maverick - I'm looking to fit a detachable towbar to my VXR Estate, can you remember the make of the towbar you fitted?

    It was the genuine Vauxhall Towbar, it's the best fitment in my opinion. I have just ordered one for my Signum (Detachable).

    Wow, quick reply, thanks.

    Do you know if the genuine one is made by Westfalia? Did the detachable part fit by being offered up vertically and did it have a red blanking plug to stop road dirt ingress, these are Westfalia trademark items ?

    I have a Westfalia detachable for my Signum, which is a great fit; they also make the BMW factory fit towbars. You can usually save money by buying Westfalia bars from independent suppliers.
