I've read that there is an OEM removable tow-bar for S2, which I guess fits RS2 (unless the RS2 bumper is deeper). Apparently it is still available, but is big $$$.

Yes it has the full leather & itís very slippy! I may change the lumber to suede, or do you have any suggestions?

The Euro plate is on its way!

Also Nick it has a detachable tow bar but a small cut has been made to fit it, can you get a detachable tow bar that actually fits rather than having to cut away the rear bumper?

Cheers


Im not to sure about the towbar Simon sorry.

Re: the leather, it must be the same crap thats in my VR6 (well its the same era), honesty I think its border line dangerous, well my seats arent as deep as yours.

Alcantara was an option in RS2s (Dads old one had grey). Its better wearing than Suede.

Leathers fine. RS2 seats are deep enough to stop flying out of them.

Awesome car Simon - getting one in black is a great score too IMO.

This is a bit left field - but would I be out of line in suggesting that if cars are generally considered female gender then having "DYK" on the plate is quite suitable for a more "butch" vehicle like the RS2  ;) :D

I actually have an original detachable towbar for RS2 in my garage somewhere. Bought RS4 now so might not need it. It is U shape and goes under bumper. No cutting.

Hi Pause1 post up info/spec on your RS4 in the A4-S4-RS4 section.

Need to find towbar first. It is in a box, in storage, in our garage somewhere. Might only find it when we move into new house in couple of months. If I get an chance I will go scratch. You will need to look under bumper to see if the audi crossbar/ reinforcing bar is under bumper. Quite deep in. Should have a roundish hole wher towbar clips into. Cheers.

Was driving along today when I realised slow b-stard in front towing the trailer was a RS2, and  after a triple take, confirmed it was Gunmetal Grey!!!. All external parts got the trainspotters tick. Have heard of this car before but was a bit scheptical as this is not a factory RS2 color. Can only speculate that this must be the one that was reshelled into a S2 body when trashed early on. Looked in good shape other that doing 60 in an 80 zone  >:(.
