Why didn't you order it with the tow bar?

I think the dealers can add the electric tow bar. I nearly got a stock Sportline 80x last December and the dealer was happy to add the tow bar, so it must be possible. I think it was about £1500 though (dont hold me to that price)

I ended up ordering a VRs 85 and got the Tow Bar added at factory, it was the only option I was allowed as also a Company Car.

As its a company car make sure the lease company are OK with you adding it, some of them get a bit funny about it if it's not factory fitted.

Skoda should be able to add a towbar, it's not cheap.

I have heard of people choosing a cheaper option from another source but often they get problems with the software updating etc, if that happens (not saying it will) it could end up costing more than the original skoda towbar.

What do you mean electric tow bar? Is it retractable?

We added the retractable towbar option to our Enyaq 85 for £815. Tried it out at the weekend after we took deliver. All works fine with our Thule bike rack, including the electrics which are part of the towbar. Pops out (and retracts) easily using a lever in the boot. We had one retrofitted to our previous VW (Tiguan). It was a quite expensive to do and meant scrambling around underneath to sit it in its housing each time, but not too difficult.

Is this a dealer fit option or factory only?

Ours was factory fitted. Not sure if many dealers fit them. Mostly specialists as for our old Tiguan.
