    Towbar, black roof rails, mudflaps.

    also want to change the grille and side vents to black.

    Change the lettering from silver/gun metal to black.

    eventually add the Dynamic kit as well.

    The factory tow setup is a bit of a rip. At least it was from my dealer. They gave me the song and dance that it required 4 hours of labor. And that's about how long the job took based on when I dropped it off and when it was ready. They told me that it had to be wired. I find it hard to believe that the rigs don't come with the wiring kit already attached. And I think the unit looks a little stocky (especially the electrical plug-in.)

    I passed on the bar and ball, thinking I could at least get that cheaper aftermarket. That turned out to be a PITA. Since the drawbar is a cat 2 (1 1/4" receiver), there weren't many at my local stores. Two out of three that I tried didn't fit into the receiver fully to the point where the pin would slide in to hold the bar in the receiver. The third one did. I have 3 trailers, all setup for 2" balls. I had a heck of a time finding a 2" ball that would fit the hole in the drawbar. Finally, today I found one at Home Depot that did fit in the hole.

    So, I'm finally ready to tow and tomorrow I'm hauling a load of garden trash to the dump. Really looking forward to how my Evoque does on the job. I suspect with the relatively short wheel base, the trailer will jack-knife quicker if I don't watch it closely when backing up.

    First tow today of wet yard trash. 800 lbs + 900 lbs for the trailer. Pulled like it wasn't even attached. Very happy with the experience. In the course of a year, I'll probably do 12 runs if history is any guide.

    Sorry, I can't figure out why the picture flipped.

    Hello chiggy,
    Is it possible to buy the grille and side vents in black and the lettering in black?
    I am also interested in putting a set of Black 20' wheels in my White Evoque.
    Please advise if you have any information on that.

    Thank you,
    brazeagle

    It is possible.

    Google duckworth parts uk and they have many evoque accessories (ncluding black grille and side vents). Contact them and they ship worldwide and just tell them what you're looking for.

    Black lettering - i saw it on eBay (Uk) last - search for evoque or something and it'll come up.

    Tow bar armature already mounted on car upon delivery or an option?

    Hi, I am considering attaching a detachable tow ball to mount a bike rack, but the agent here in SG is not helpful to my query: does the evoque come with the tow bar armature already fitted on the underside so just need to purchase the tow ball and attach it, or must an armature tow bar and tow ball be purchased as a set to do the job?
