tricky. a lot of places don't do this now because of insurance reasons. just phone round. best bet is small independants where they use 2nd hand vans, if they came in with a tow bar it'll still be on. few if any actually fit tow bars now.

I'm gonner sound like a bummer here, but I quite enjoy the hole activty


Maybe the government should stop telling me to stop eating thick sliced white bread and tell people to stop smoking crack instead.

Don't you have a 7 series? Sticking a towbar on that will be cheaper than hiring something.

you'll battle to take a hire car out the UK without a few extra problems mate.

find a mate with a 4x4 or estate.

or buy our omega 2.5 td :)

Ends are not bad things, they just mean that something else is about to begin.

And there are many things that don't really end, anyway, they just begin again in a new way.

Ends are not bad and many ends aren't really an ending; some things are never-ending.

A wise choice sir :D:D

Plus with 2 french walled vehicles in the convoy the TA sweepstakes on which one blows up first will be in full swing.

I will be running on rather spiffing chip fat as well for added aroma :D
