    SRI TURBO question

    i fitted this kit to my car and wondered how the hell you tow another car? the towing eye seems as though its position would damage the rear diffuser when towing, is the position of the turbos towing eye different to a standard G?
    Cheers Rich.

    You have to remove the right hand section of the extension for towing.

    IT says in the handbook that you shouldn't tow another car/caravan with the Turbo engine.

    Not sure why :? :?

    I just love towing cars!

    It was a fine winters morning last weekend, when I decided to muck about with my car. After peering under the car I thought to myself 'how the hell do you tow a car with the body kit there, and the towing eye there'

    I do recall the standard mk2 having a different towing eye than a GTE at the front so thought this may be the case in this senario.

    cheers for the info nutty, but on second thoughts after checking out those instructions if anyone wants a tow they can @!£$ off! (mines bonded and screwed on)
    Cheers Rich.

    You cannot fit a towbar to the Turbo hatch, because of the tyre sizes apparently.

    As steve says, Your not supposed to tow with any astra fitted with 17" wheels, not just the turbo. I am trying to remember why, its posted somewhere cos ive asked this question before. Hmmm, give me a while to find it.
