    is it a mk4 or mk5 astra. I have a mk4 astra with a towbar. they are so easily installed it is ridiculous. I bought my towbar of a mate as it was on his car when he bought it. I have it now on my 2nd astra and I wouldnt be without one, as you say thaat bit of protection from being rear ended, plus i have a trailer and a towbar mounted cycle carrier (better than them on the roof or those doppy hatchback carriers that scrape your paint)

    Try a website called tow trust tow bars.

    They are a local company to me but they sell nationwide and deliver/post etc.

    Ive just bought one for my dads passat, Twin electrics, tow bar, ball and a special thing for chargeing the caravan battery for £110 all in but that was trade to me.

    It was easily fitted to the passat as volkswagon were kind enough to drill the holes ready for us.

    You can always pick em off ebay cheap.

    Oh, and as for being rear ended with a towbar - it will probably do more damage than without.....think fecked chassis legs
