    Hi, Dave

    Thanks for getting back to me, I have a few questions if you don't mind ?

    (1) I am thinking about have a A frame from Tow-a-car fitted and was wondering if the mounting brackets can be removed by undoing bolts etc or are there part that are welded on ? the main point is would it be very difficult to remove

    (2) Are there any specific problems associated with the Panda that i should watch out for

    (3) How does it affect your MPG

    and any other advice would be appreciated

    Hi, mine was carried out by Chris Cox, the attaching lugs are mounted on a bar, which is detachable by undoing the fixing bolts if you wish to do so, personally I leave it on..looks a little odd but we're used to it now!
    The Panda we bought new 0n a 55 plate and not had a moments bother, it is in daily use by Mandy when not being towed.
    MPG is lower due to the extra weight, but performance is not affected at cruising speed,it just takes a little longer to get there!:BigGrin:
    Advice,..well allow more space and time when approaching roundabouts or junctions and when braking are the obvious ones, forgetting it is on the back from time to time is easily done, a decent rear view camera is a must, use the spare (non remote) key to operate the ignition lock, and alarm/immobilize the car with the main key for security when unattended but still hitched, anything else just shout!:Smile:
    Regards Dave
