Think you might struggle with that price. Towequipe sell them cheaper with fixings & bumper bracket.

Also you will need to find out exactly what model it will fit. Some fiesta's have the numberplate in the bumper & others in the hatch. These need different towbars.

I agree on the price.....too much

A 1998 Fiesta will be a Mk4 (came out in late 96)all Mk4's have the plate recesed into the bumper. A mk4 towbar should be the same as the mk5 too.from 'W' up to about '52' reg.

I thought that was quite reasonable considering comes with electrics, oh dear my mistake. What do you think a reasonable price would be?

Please dont take me the wrong way when I say this but you also need to consider how many people there are who wanting to fit a towbar to a ten year old Fiesta. In all honesty I think it'll have to be cheap 'cos I dont think there'll be many.

I'm not knocking Fiesta's by the way, I'm a Ford man through and through and my Wifes 'T' reg. 1999 Fiesta Mk4 is sitting on the drive too. It's only done just over 40k from new.

But Hey, you never know some one might be looking for one.

Little bro's are usually the last drivers of vehicle before it gets turned into fridges.they have a tendency to thrash them til they bleed oil.i know because my brother did with mine.your lil bro might be a really sensible and cautious driver though.

Or if you leave the fiesta attached to it,you might get a bit more.
