    New Tow Rig

    I did not put the styrofoam on. It is form fitted to the original bumper and would not fit the original or my modified hitch. There is a space between the plastic bumper cover and the hitch. There is more give when you push on the bumper cover. I would guess you would do more damage to the cover...

    Trailer Package for 2012 Passat TDI SEL?

    I modified a Westfalia hitch intended for the Euro spec passat B7 and have been very happy with the results, Pricey, but a superior product . I will never use a hitch again that mounts to the sheet metal of the body like the US manufactures do. http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?t=334858

    Receiver hitch?

    None of the US hitch manufactures are selling a hitch for the TDI. The urea tank covers the right frame rail where the US hitches connect. The euro hitches are the only option and at this time and they do not offer a hitch for the US spec Passat B7. Curt makes a hitch for the gas Passat only...

    I am not sure whether westfalia does or not. Here is the website I purchased the hitch and it looks like they carry all kinds of cycle haulers. You can get the Witter towbar that has a flange mount. With the flange mount you can attach the cycle carrier and still tow...

    I used the Curt converter http://www.etrailer.com/t1-2012_Volkswagen_Passat.htm I cut the 4 wire flat off the end so I could pass the wire through the trunk and installed a 7 wire RV plug. That is the standard plug you get on all SUV's and pickups with factory wiring . I wanted it...

    New Tow Rig

    I have not had a load on the trailer yet. Just pulled the trailer. The trailer has a GVW of 2200# and I doubt that I ever will have it that heavy. The biggest load that I had on my o6 Jetta TDI was a John Deere x595 with mower deck which I would estimate weighed about 1000#plus the aluminum...
