    would there be any interest in tow hook's fMK2 & MK3

    the Tow hooks are designed for the Megane MK2 and MK3 made from 316 stainless steel. Its a direct fitment and does not require any modification to fit it. Comes with black hoop, I may be able to get other colours (silver, red, gold) but may take a couple of days longer. when they are first screwed in the may need to be screwed in and out a couple of times as the threads get dirt in them

    they are £36 delivered 1st class recorded

    MK2

    Any chance of doing the mk3 one being a bit shorter though? Like an inch or so, juat so it sits a bit closer to the bumper
     
  5. I'll take one in red. MK3 variant
     
  6. do they rattle at all? I had a tow eye on my 172 and it did my head in!
     
  7. I am interested in two for a Mk2, preferably with a red or gold loop.

    Do you have a weight for them?

    Thanks.

    what colour would you be after?

    yeah thats possibly, it isnt screwed in all the way in the picture but i can do then so they shorter

    ill order the loops and let you know

    they have a little grub screw on the loop so it doesn't wave around

    the MK2 weighs around 550-600g
    the MK3 weighs abit more 650-700g

    If you could get a photo of the MK3 screwed all the way in that would be great, I'm not to keen on having it poke out that much, rather it sits flusher to the bumper

    yeah i can, ill have to meet with @ghosty0101 again, but i think it is about 2cm longer than the OEM

    If you could that would be great, ideally I'd like it so most of the silver bar isn't protruding and all you can see is the black part

    1x MK2 sold
     
  14. Just to jump in, I would be keen on a red one for a Mk3 as Jamie describes above, having it sitting flusher to the bumper ( now singing that grace jones song in may head lol) Have a KTec strap but does not fit and not keen on a big modification to the bumper.
     
  15. I have the Ktec strap fitted to the front of mine, it's not straight forward to install and you have to cut some of the bumper at the back.

    It's faded a lot since that photo and looks a bit crap

  28. I will go for 1no. Mk2 towing eye. As per comments above, can you do them a smidge shorter?

    Also, did you confirm what colours were available?

    Thanks
     
  29. I'll take a black one for a Mk3.

    right ive got 4 of the tow extensions done, i did buy slightly thicker rod which means there was a little bit of turning down done and a little bit more expense. with regards to the hooks ive decided im only going to supply black and if you want a different colour ill knock £4 off the price

    with a hook £40 posted 1st class recorded
    without hook £36 posted 1st class recorded

    and if anyone is interested in the longer ones in the picture for the mk3 ill do them at £20 posted each

  31. I'm fine with what ever colour mate....once your sorted let me know and I'll get you paid.

    You message says that if you want another colour, you'll knock £4 off the price, so red would be cheaper? Guessing a typo.

    yeah sorry should say ' if you want a different colour ill knock £4 off and you can get it yourself'
