Why the bcm plug are not identified A B C?
From the drawing it look like A is the farthest from the driver seat.

Should i install a fuse between the tapped A57 and the brake controller?

If I don't come back, it's because I tapped the wrong wire.
I love you all.

When you ordered your bar from amazon.de, what kind of shipping were you seeing?

Looks like around 250E for the bar and about 150E for cheapest shipping, so just under $500USD to land at my door. Sounds like you were able to ship via a relative, to bring the costs down.

The exchange rate was better when I ordered, but I did pay them to ship it. I needed a rear diffusor that my sister shipped me. Since then, Iíve discovered one can do better through e-Acca. I updated my thread to show that.

Iíll edit this if Iím wrong, but I got the hitch and wiring shipped for like $470. I definitley wanted the factory wiring, so it wasnít really more expensive than say an Eco hitch plus ordering the wiring from Europe for me.

One thing to note about amazon in Europe is that the price includes a 19% vat that will be removed when you choose to ship it to the US in your cart. The kit I ordered is currently listed as Ä419, but is really Ä339 plus shipping.

PFJones used to remove the VAT as well, but I think theyíve updated their Dollar pricing and no longer change the price.

PF jones price of the units isn't bad (without wiring) and easy to swallow, its their $120 shipping for a tow bar and then another $120 or so if I want a towbar mounted bike rack.

All in all PF jones is just under 800 to land it at my door, which isn't that that bad when considering any US hitch bike rack plus curt/eco hitch would be maybe a little bit less. For the time being I'm not looking at any wiring.

I'd pull the trigger if they at least offered a 1-2 week shipping for say $100 for both.

As for wiring what specifically do you gain via OEM wiring over say one of the standard US jobbies? I'm all for keeping OEM but i draw the line at a certain price.

I like the that my car knows when a trailer is connected with the oem module. It adjusts the esp program and can step in to stop a trailer from swaying out of control. Iíve posted a video of it in action somewhere on this site.

The oem wiring isnít super easy to install, but itís nice that you donít have to splice into anything. You run the wires, and plug everything up where itís supposed to go.

Not as important, but I get bulb out notifications for my trailer in my mfd, and have another idiot light on my dash that lights up when I have the trailer turn signal or emergency flashers on.

I just got a the same hitch and wiring for my red Ď15 so will be looking back at this post a lot- thanks for putting it up! Can you tell me the ball height with and without a full tongue load? Need to see if Iíll have trouble with my Scampís stance. The trailer is level at 15.5Ē at the inside top of the coupler ball cavity, 14 at lower lip

Hereís a link to the Westfalia catalog with the part numbers.
https://www.westfalia-automotive.com..._GB_OP_web.pdf
My car didnít have preliminary set up, and I assume no US cars do. MK7 starts on page 232. Saloon = hatchback. Estate = wagon. The ones labeled KIT have the hitch and the wiring.
I ordered 305 409 900 113 for my hatchback, which was the hitch and the wiring. A wagon should be 321 784 900 113 according to the catalog.
Luckily, wagon owners donít need to replace the diffuser.
Hereís one on amazon.de. https://www.amazon.de/Westfalia-Abne...a+321784900113

If this is what I need then this is dirt cheap!

For EU spec bar and dedicated wiring...

I'll assume the 7pin is not the same as American 7pin..

Wait until you factor shipping in, they ship 3 day via USP, shipping was 120 for my bar.

Also I got this one for our alltrack but i opted for etrailer piggy back wiring. As that 7 euro wiring isn't the same as the US 7 pin, but you can but stand along adapters to convert a euro 7 pin to a US flat 4 pin, etrailer sells them for Discovery owners I think.

Only crappy part of the install i wasn't prepared for (i should have if i was smarter) was pulling down the heat shields around the muffler for the mounting bolts, those little effers are a pain in the butt to pop out, I'd def buy some extras in case you mangle them, also Alltrack has dual exhaust TDI does not so maybe it won't be that big of a deal.
