Default IS-F tow bar

Hey All,

I'm Looking into buying an '09 IS-F (08) is another option i'm considering depending on pricing.

Just a point I need to clear up before I go ahead, has anyone ever put a tow bar on an IS-F with any success, and without it looking daggy?

I've called Lexus New Zealand and was advised there is no OEM tow bar for the IS-F but they suggested an IS250 may be able to be modded to suit.... that particular one has a removable tongue so I thought it might not look too bad....

Thoughts please?

Droughty

Hitches always look out of place on sports cars, but if you have something you "need" to tow I guess you don't have much for options.

Thanks, I didn't realise you guys call them a tow-hitch wherever you are, it's a tow bar in my neck of the woods! Would have made my fruitless searches a little easier....

Can't help with the towbar, but welcome from another kiwi. Is it one of the ones on TradeMe you're looking at? Mine was bought from Industry Motors, who currently have two 08s for sale.
