      Whoa, and also available with a 2" receiver. Handy if anyone is sharing one rack with a larger vehicle using a Class III.

      I'm also only interested in a hitch for bikes, but I don't think the tow warnings have to do with Haldex. Doesn't the Tiguan also use Haldex?

      I think that's a really nice touch. It shows attention-to-detail, and I hope it speaks for the quality in the rest of the hitch's design.

      Would you be able to post another photo, perhaps in...

      Thank you and Torklift for doing the...

      Curious to know what cars have a better-looking, more concealed front-facing radar than the VW/Audi setup? Although I think it looks more integrated, I don't think the "eyeball" on the current 911...

      Nice! If you can, try mounting the box as far back as possible. I can't tell from your photo if it is already in that position. I have the same box, and I find that it cuts down on the wind noise and...

      So many of you are just removing the two screws, not taping the teeth, and getting similar functionality? But having to do a fast open-close motion? That seems to me to be a decent compromise for...

      Power required to hit a certain speed increases with the square of velocity (i.e. exponential). I think you might be underestimating how much power it takes to overcome drag, and how quickly it...
