Baseplate and Towbar for BMW 128i

Aloha;

I love my beemer and want to tow it behind our soon to be built moho. It has a manual transmission and the owners manual says it can be towed 4 down with no speed or mileage restrictions. However I can't seem to find a tow bar for it. Help!!!

When I wanted to start towing my 2000 Miata, I couldn't find one either,
so I designed and fabricated my own.

YOU may have to do the same.

The baseplate and towbar cost less than $50 and I used it for 6 years and 35,000 miles.

Is it safe to assume your visit with Michelle went well this week?

We are seeing her this coming Monday, I think I got the date wrong in my post about going to the factory. I am a doof about dates since we retired. Had to buy one of those clocks that tells you what day it is :(

We have already ordered a DS 3736, just need to tweek it a little, no big things on our must have list. Just colors and flooring and taking out the uncomfortable love seat in front of the tv.

Good idea, will call them tomorrow. I have an email off to blue ox already. I really really like my car and don't want to trade it in for a jeep, not that there's anything wrong with a jeep, but the beemer is paid off and has heated seats and a heated steering wheel, and it's fun....
